We are using Navigator for web Application Administration in r710,720 restricting the default access .
There is a discrepancy on the database function
All the left panel options will display the IBM i Navigator Message

Help Minimize Maximize


User USER is not authorized to task 'db.allobj' on system PRINCE.


The user does not have enough authority to view this task.


Contact your IBM i Administrator
However if you are in the right panel you do not get the same messages.

Use Case:

Selecting Actions and Schemas a pull down menu is displayed, allowing the restricted user access to some functions which we understand should be limited.

Just double click over the system showed under database on the left side

We think right panel should be limited for user restricted.

    The existing behavior may in fact be incorrect as you have stated. Please open a PMR and work with our Service team to determine whether or not this is a defect.
