Use Case:

When sending the SNDDST email, the owner of the message monitor would not be the sender of the email. It should be either my group profile or a generic support profile. If I could change the ownership of the monitor then this could be achieved

    The CEAC has reviewed this requirement and recommends that IBM view this as a HIGH priority requirement that is important to address. There is no current workaround, the option is to make changes to a monitor needs to available when you have *ALLOBJ authority and to be able to change the owner.

    Background: The COMMON Europe Advisory Council (CEAC) members have a broad range of experience in working with small and medium-sized IBM i customers. CEAC has a crucial role in working with IBM i development to help assess the value and impact of individual RFEs on the broader IBM i community and has therefore reviewed your RFE.

    To find out how CEAC help to shape the future of IBM i, see CEAC @ and the article "The Five Hottest IBM i RFEs Of The Quarter" at
