The SECURE PROCEDURE command secures a procedure by assigning a class to it. Access to a secured procedure is limited to users whose user classes authorize them to access the procedure class specified for the procedure. The way in which user classes are mapped to procedure classes is discussed in SECURE PROCEDURE ACCESS command. This mapping can be used to restrict access to procedures that perform sensitive operations such as updating personnel records or displaying salary data.
If any of the procedures specified in the command are currently secured, their old procedure classes are changed to the new one.
When it processes SECURE PROCEDURE NAME, Model 204 ends any current SOUL update unit and begins a non-backoutable update unit. If a Model 204 command non-backoutable update unit is in progress, SECURE PROCEDURE NAME is included in that update unit. See update units for more information.
