Restrict users from using F13

Restrict users from using F13

Is there a way to restrict users from using the F13 "Remove All" in QSYSOPR message queue while remaining at a security level 20?

At QSECURITY level 20 you can't really restrict users from anything. If you examine each of your user's profiles you will see that they have *ALLOBJ security –- essentially security officer rights. So if allowed to break the answer into two parts, I would reply that yes, you can restrict users from deleting messages from the QSYSOPR message queue, but no, not if you're running at QSECURITY level 20 and they all have *ALLOBJ special authority.
