Limit what access to what group? Be descriptive of your requirement and what have you tried?

Your requirement is a little vague, but the IRRXUTIL utility will most likely achieve what you're after.

Your use of the rexx program is not clear to me. They already have to have access to the rexx program in order to execute it. I think you need to define your permissions ahead of time, before they try to execute the rexx program.

Though, I do not think this is a good scheme. For example, if the rexx program reads some secret data set, it is the data set that needs to be protected, not the rexx program.

questions dealing with security should be discussed with the security group of Your organisation
NOT ASKED ON A FORUM

we know nothing about Your company rules and practices
so any advice ( even a technically sound one ) might be wrong and/or against Your company rules
