Rule Management

The Access Administration panel provides an extensive menu of tools for centralized control over session establishment in your local domain:

Display (value) Group

Rule display

Rule test

lists session activity that is being monitored by Access

Access Rule Definition

The Rule Definition panel provides a wide range of operands for defining specific or general rules that allow or deny session establishment. For example, let's say you only want to allow a remote Payment Department's staff to access your production CICS system during peak business hours:

Access Rule Example

In this example you will "Allow" terminal devices beginning with "PAY" from Subarea "3" to establish a session with "DBDCCICS" between "07:00"(7:00am) and "18:00" (6:00pm) on any Weekday (Monday - Friday); any other LU's or those LU's outside of the time and day interval will be denied session establishment.

Access Session Monitor

The following example demonstrates the real-time monitoring viewpoint, including Rule-based approvals and denials, provided by the Message Queue:
