If you use RACF you may be able to define your own dataset profile as it is under your uid, and then permit others to access it accordingly.

I think it is
Code:

ADDSD 'your dataset name' GENERIC UACC(NONE) OWNER(uid)

PE 'your dataset name' ID(whoever) A(READ/UPDATE/CONTROL/ALTER)

Hi,

When you create VSAM files using FILE-AID, you have a section called " Specify Allocation options", under that section you have two options

1) Region share option of values ranging from 1 to 4.

2) System share option of values 3 & 4.

For granting Write and Read access to multiple users, use option 3 in Region share option and 3 in System share option.

Hope this helps.

there are a few perspective to be considered

technical :
if Your skills allow it no problem it can be done with a few commands issued
to the securty manager application ( RACF/ACF/TOPSECRET)
at least 2 are needed
>> define the profile
>> define the access list

STRONG ADVICE:
do not rely on forum consultancy for these kind of problems,
remember this is a voluntary effort, and even if You might get the answers You need, You might not get them in time (Your urgency is NOT our urgency)

and again there are the security and auditing issuess
organizations with a medium and higher security approach frown upon users playing around with security related command
from a legal point of view they are responsible for the content of their personal archives and the disclosure of their content

I do know more than one organization were this approach is forbidden
( I STRONGLY AGREE WITH THEM )

the less You muck around with profiles and access list the better You live

If there is any data that You need to share, plan the approach with Your project coordinator

regards
