What is profile self in display authrec?

You can give authority to connect using

setmqaut -m QMA -t qmgr -g test +connect

The defintions have to hang off a profile name. When using the queue manager, it has an internally used profile of “self”.

PROFILE(self) ENTITY(test) ENTTYPE(GROUP) OBJTYPE(QMGR) AUTHLIST(CONNECT,DSP)
PROFILE(@class) ENTITY(test) ENTTYPE(GROUP) OBJTYPE(QMGR) AUTHLIST(NONE)

Why is there a @class entry? See here.

If you remove authority from a group or userid, the entry is left, but with access (NONE).

dis authrec objtype(qmgr)

PROFILE(self) ENTITY(testuser) ENTTYPE(GROUP) OBJTYPE(QMGR) AUTHLIST(NONE)
