You could set up a QOS that only users allowed to use that queue can
QOSCFG[DEFAULT] priority=0 (or some other QOS parameter)
USERCFG[userx] QLIST=high:DEFAULT QDEF=DEFAULT
Don't forget to set QOSWEIGHT to something or the priority from QOS
Now only userx can use the "high" QOS.
CLASSCFG[somequeue] QLIST=high:DEFAULT QDEF=DEFAULT
should enable the "high" QOS for anyone allowed to use the "somequeue"
There are lots of other ways one can use this too.
