SHARE is a privilege that lets the processes assign channels to devices allocates to other processes or to a nonshared device using the Assign I/O Channel ($ASSIGN) system service. Because this privilege has the potential to control the system, it belongs to the All group of privileges.

This privilege should be granted only to system processes such as print symbionts. An irresponsible user with the SHARE privilege may interfere with the operation of devices belonging to other users.
