ANZPRFACT - output to *OUTFILE or *PRINT or to the screen to check which profiles are candidates for disabling


We would like to use ANZPRFACT functionality/command on regular basis, but not having a chance to check which profiles are candidates for disabling. Idea is to enahnce the ANZPRFACT command to have output to OUTFILE or PRINT or to the screen.


Thank you.

    As noted, this type of report can be generated using SQL. The ANZPRFACT processing checks 3 dates: the last used date, the restore date (if last used is blank), and the create date (if restore date is blank). To perform the same checking, the OBJECT_STATISTICS table function can be used instead of USER_INFO. It returns all of these dates: LAST_USED_TIMESTAMP, RESTORE_TIMESTAMP, and OBJCREATED.

    This can today easily be done by leveraging the SQL view USER_PROFILE to extract the user profiles not used in a number of days (LAST_USED_DATE < current_date - NN days ).
