TAA Tools

The  Change  Owned  Objects command  changes  the  ownership  of  owned
objects from one user profile to another.

A typical command would be entered as:

           CHGOWNOBJ   FROMUSER(xxx) TOUSER(yyy)

You must have *ALLOBJ authority to use the command.

At  the completion  of the command,  a message  is sent  describing the
number  of objects changed and if any  errors occurred.  A spooled file
is created with a  list of the objects  changed and the details of  any
errors that have occurred.

The users message queue in QUSRSYS is never changed.

Command parameters                                    *CMD

   FROMUSER      The  user  who  currently   owns  the  objects  to  be

   TOUSER        The  user to change  the ownership of  the objects to.

   OBJTYPE       The object  type  to change.    The default  is  *ALL.
                 Specifying an  object type  allows you to  change only
                 specific object types.

   ACTION        The type of action to perform. *CHANGE will change the
                 owner of the selected objects to the new owner. *CHECK
                 will only produce a report of the proposed changes. The
                 default is *CHANGE.

   ESCAPE        Whether or not to send an escape message if either the
                 from user profile or the to user profile begins with a
                 Q. This is a safeguard to prevent changing ownership of
                 IBM i system objects. *YES - The escape will be sent.
                 *NO - The escape will not be sent and ownership can be
                 changed. Use *NO with caution. The default is *YES.


You must have *ALLOBJ authority or adopt it to use CHGOWNOBJ.

QDOCx objects are not supported.
