    Hi Everyone,

    I am new to this forum and Lawson. I have searched the web and found that this and LawsonTalk have been very helpful on getting me up to speed.

    A little about myself, I work with an accounting firm and spend the majority of my year assisting our clients Internal Audit departments prepare for their external auditors. My focus is SOX compliance.

    Well, my company has a large knowledge library for all applications apart from Lawson, so i have come here in search of help.

    My question is in regards to Paint Screen. I have heard that there maybe way to obtain a history of users that have used Paint Screen. This would be helpful, because then i could prove to the external auditors that only certain individuals are using the tool so to speak.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Regards,
    Chris

    Hi Christopher,
    I'm not aware of any way within Lawson to log/audit use of environment utilities, with the exception of the dump/load utilities like importdb, etc. which get logged to $LAWDIR/system/secadmin.log. What you can do is *restrict* the use of those utilities, via Environment Security in LAUA. That would prevent a user from having access to creating a paint screen. Of course, there are other ways--via the operating system--that you can log the use of these utilities.
    Thanks for using the LawsonGuru.com forums!
    John

    Thanks John,

    I think we are going to set up a monthly review of the OS logs to monitor the use of the utilities. But this makes me wonder if there a description of how one might restrict the use of those utilities in LAUA.

    Thanks for providing a good forum and information,
    Chris
