Hi,

I want to protect my dataset in such a way that only one particular job can read it.

How can I do this. Please provide your valuable suggestions.

Thanks
Rashi

You need to define what you mean by 'protect'. Do you mean via security access, or do you mean in terms of scheduling (e.g. CA7 constraints), disposition in JCL (DISP=OLD), shareoptions in VSAM?

Maybe another case of the "I don't want my work mates to see what I've done " syndrome ?

And, I believe you did not mean "How to create password protected dataset?"

Yes?

Password protection is STRONGLY DISCOURAGED nowadays. One reason being, out of many others, it will certainly prevent automated backups. When storage guys encounter password protected datasets from the HSM error report, they'll typically zap the VTOC to remove password protection, and then remove the dataset and then it can not be restored ever.

If it's very necessary, speak with the security support people and follow they guidelines on protecting datasets.
