Adopted Authority

I have a program that I have written that essentially ends a particular subsystem and then starts it back up.  I want to allow one of our generic plant user accounts the ability to run this command so they can start/stop a subsystem for troubleshooting. The problem is that the generic user does not have permissions to use the ENDSBS/STRSBS command and I don't really want to go out to each of our 50 servers to change the authority for those commands.

I attempted to do a SBMJOB on the ENDSBS/STRSBS commands and run that as QSYSOPR, but the generic user profile does not have authority to the QSYSOPR user profile.

Does anyone know a way that I can run this program using this generic user profile? I didn't know if there was a compile option or a command that would help me get around this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sure:

1) Compile the program to use adopted authority, and
2) Then assign ownership of the program to a profile that has authority to run the commands (like QSYSOPR in your example)
