iSee Who is Actually Using an IFS Directory

Back to Package

The IFS is largely a mystery to many. In this session we will help you unravel a piece of that mystery. The question was presented to us, ‘Can I find out WHO is actually using and accessing directories in IFS?’  The answer of course, YES!!!  Starting in IBM i 7.4, the operating system added a feature,  Authority Collection for Objects.  Leveraging this and a few simple SQL statements, you can get a full access log to every user that has touched an IFS directory for any reason.
