Removing the user from the Authorization list

Dear Team,

I am accepting that using RVKOBJAUT , it is possible to revoke the access of the objects.
But what we are trying to vanish the line from Authorization list itself.
Is it possibe? If means how to do it?
user                             Object Authority
Amutha                          *exclude

I want to delete this line from the Authorization list itself.
If it is possible means, tell  us how to do?

An "authorization list" has a specific security meaning on the AS/400.  It is not correct to use the term the way you are using it, and it will get you confusing responses.  Use "object authority list" to refer to the rights granted directly to users or groups for a given object.

An "authorization list" is a seperate object of type *AUTL that allows you to use a list of authorities for multiple objects.

As I outlined in your other question, to drop user AMUTHA, who currently has *EXCLUDE rights from the object authority list on a given object, you will need to obtain an exclusive lock on the object, and then execute the following command:

RVKOBJAUT OJB(lib/object) TYPE(*type) USER(aumtha) AUT(*exclude)

- Gary Patterson
you can use the RMVAUTLE command

Hi Bsidmis,

-Do a WRKOBJLCK on the file. If nobody is using it you can modifiy the authority.
-Do a WRKOBJ on the file CLMPF/BAILBRP and option 2. Just remove *all in the Object Authority and hit enter.

To remove the user from this screen, you have to blank out all of the authority columns. You will need to press F11 to blank out all of these. When they are all blanked out, the user is removed from this list.
