tpacladd—Adds a new Access Control List on the system.


tpacladd [-g GID[,GID . . . ]] [-t type] name


Invoking tpacladd adds a new Access Control List (ACL) entry to the BEA Tuxedo ATMI security data files. This information is used for BEA Tuxedo ATMI access control to services, events, and application queues. A BEA Tuxedo configuration with SECURITY set to USER_AUTH, ACL, or MANDATORY_ACL must be created before you can run this command successfully.

The following options are available.

-g GID, . . .

A list of one or more existing group's integer identifiers or character-string names. This option indicates which groups have access to the named object. If this option is not specified, an entry is added with no groups.

-t type

The type of the object. It can be one of the following: ENQ, DEQ, SERVICE, or POSTEVENT. The default is SERVICE.


A unique string of printable characters that specifies the name of a service, event, or application queue for which access is to be granted. It may not contain a colon (:), pound sign (#), or a newline (\n).

Before running this command you must: (a) configure the application, using either the graphical user interface or tmloadcf(1); and (b) set the TUXCONFIG environment variable to point to your TUXCONFIG file. tpacladd must be run on the configuration MASTER if the application is not active. If the application is active, this command can run on any active node.


This command is available on any platform on which the BEA Tuxedo ATMI server environment is supported.


The tpacladd command exits with a return code of 0 upon successful completion.
