Authorization for special MainView AutoOPERATOR functions

Depending on how a MainView AutoOPERATOR EXEC is scheduled, it is assigned a specific type of origin. The origin is checked against a matching USERID member before default security options are checked. Additional USERID members may be needed for the following origins:
