Authorizations and privileges

Even though the connection to the MVS, OS/390, or z/OS system is established through the kbde-Server, authentication information is requested at the client level. In other words, when you connect to a project made available by the kbde-Server, you must enter a user ID and password to connect to the database server where the project is located.

Data Express can save login information and use it for future connections to the same project, so you will not need to enter your user ID and password every time you connect.

Note: Not selecting the Save user and password item from the Option window disables this feature.

The user ID used to establish the database connection must have read privileges on the following tables or views:

  • All tables created by Data Express in the MVS, OS/390, or z/OS DB2 environment during the installation phase.
