Hi,
Can some one help me on ... how to find whether a userid (which is not owned by me) is having access on a data set or not.

In other words ... i want to find whether the userid USER1 has access to read/alter/... a dataset ABC.DEF.XYZ.

Thanks in advance.

You will need to ask your security people about who has and has not access to datasets.

Hi Nanda,
Did you tried with the command TSO LU? which will give the databases and datasets which you have access and type of access.

Not really a solution as the OP requested the information for an id that IS NOT him.

I do not think that is entirely true. It lists the groups you have access to, but not the datasets.

You would use the LISTDSD command to determine who has access to that dataset.
