Audit Issue - IBM Web Administration for i Permisssions Enhancement

By default, only users or their groups with *ALLOBJ & *IOSYSCFG special authorities can manage and create Web related servers on the system through the use of IBM Web Administration for i. The Web related server include IBM HTTP Server, WebSphere Application Server, Integrated Application Server and Integrated Web Services Server. If a user without the necessary IBM i special authorities is required to manage or create Web based servers, an administrator can grant that user permission to a server or group of servers.

I was able to define a developer role for the user Test, and recreate the msgCPC1126 Job 499853/QTMHHTTP/WSERVICE99 was ended by user QSECOFR.
wkrusrprf Test
user class = *user
In order for *user to get the *allobj/*iosyscfg needed authorities, it has to temporarily swap to Qsecofr to get the special authorities for the stop task.
We need the User recorded as the user that performed the action, not Qsecofr which is the name of the temporary swap user.

Use Case:

add, delete and modify web related servers using Ibm Web Adminsration for IBM i. Start and stop related servers using IBM Web Administration for IBM i.

    The CAAC has reviewed this requirement and recommends that IBM view this as a high priority requirement that is important to be addressed. This is needed to ensure on an audit that one can know who made security changes in web administration.

    Background: The COMMON Americas Advisory Council (CAAC) members have a broad range of experience in working with small and medium-sized IBM i customers. CAAC has a key 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.
