Administration Runtime Expert for i

This is RFE is for IBM i product: 5733ARE - IBM Administration Runtime Expert for i (Application Runtime Expert)

Under 'System Environment' selection
- component User IDs

I would like to request that we have the ability to build a template to review Group Profile - Members.

Use Case:

For SOX related activities, we are routinely required to review power user and/or "power group profiles" from the previous month ends, quarter ends or an annual basis. (to see what's changed, etc.)

This ARE add would not just give the ability to compare user/group profile attributes. But in regards to Groups, the ability to compare members added/deleted between the last time the script was ran.

    Hello, I'm curious on the status of this RFE please. As we trend to role-based group profiles, this is quickly becoming a greater asset or tool to have and further promote the ARE tool! Thank you!!
