Sysdba Specific Privileges

Sysdba Specific Privileges

There are a few important things to know when managing Sysdba specific privileges in your database. These include local and common privileges, Password protection of sysdba roles, and Schema. You should also have the privileges necessary to work on the schema. After reading this article, you should feel much more comfortable managing your own privileges. If you're not sure what privileges are necessary for your role, please check out the following articles:

Common and local privileges in sysdba

Common and local privileges in SysdBA can be assigned to users of different roles. Typically, users can grant privileges to common roles by using the CONTAINER=ALL clause. However, there are also differences between common and local privileges. This article will discuss differences between common and local privileges, as well as their benefits. In addition, Oracleforensics will examine some of the key differences between local and common roles.

SYSDBA privileges are granted to users with administrative rights. SYSDBA privileges allow a user to perform basic operational tasks such as CREATE DATABASE and SET SYSOPER_PRIVIleges. This privilege requires a password to be granted. The password is stored in a password file called 'SYSDBA passwordfile.' Other users can be added to this password file using the 'GRANT SYSDBA to &USER' command. The next time you are logged into the database, you should be sure to change the password.

In EM Express, both common and local privileges are granted. Common grants are granted to users while local privileges are granted to roles. The main difference between these two privileges is the value that is used in the CONTAINER clause. When you are given privileges by a system user, it is possible to change them in the SYSDBA object and grant them to another role. This will also prevent people from gaining access to certain objects.

Password protection for sysdba roles

The SYSDBA system privilege is the highest level of administrative privilege in a database. SYSDBA users are empowered to create, delete, and restart databases, and even change archivelog-mode. As a result, their passwords are complex, and their actions are carefully audited. This is why you should password-protect SYSDBA roles to prevent unauthorized users from accessing them.

The SYSDBA role can be password-protected by granting the user the appropriate Admin Option, or a different database role. The SYSDBA can grant other users a role by specifying the WITH GRANT OPTION. However, he can't specify which roles other users can grant and revoke. SYSDBA can omit this option if the role is not meant for non-administrative users.

However, this doesn't prevent malicious users from accessing databases and data. An attacker can exploit this vulnerability by tricking a victim into opening a specially-crafted archive. Once the user executes the malicious code, they can spread the attack. This vulnerability affects systems with SYSDBA and ALL-type privileges. A compromised system can be infected with Oracle Voyager Worm and spread to other servers.

The DBA role provides the ability to create database objects in any schema. It does not require any individual to have create object system privileges. However, there are security implications of this privilege, as users who are in the DBA role can modify other users' schemas. In addition, the DBA role user has access to expired passwords. This means that the DBA user may have unintended access to sensitive databases.

Revocation of sysdba specific privileges

When you need to revoke a privilege from a user, you should use the REVOKE statement. This statement is an executable statement and can be embedded in application programs or issued interactively. The REVOKE statement removes type privileges from authorization names. It also revokes privileges on user-defined types. When using the REVOKE statement, make sure to include "type" in the keyword list.

Using the revoke system privilege command, you can remove permissions from a user or role. For example, if a user has the privilege to create a foreign key reference to a table or column, you can remove it by using the REFERENCES statement. The SELECT privilege type is also revoked, which means that you cannot perform SELECT statements on that table or view.

Revocation of sysdbA specific privileges is a crucial part of maintaining a database's security. It's important to note that you cannot grant this privilege to another user, unless you know that person's password and user ID. Once you've got this, you can restore the privileges to the original user. It's also important to note that SYSDBA privileges are different from operating system roles. If you're worried about your own security, you should use the sysdba command instead.

You can revoke SYSDBA specific privileges if you have created a user that is not SYSDBA. This command will remove all privileges from that user, even if they're SYSDBA. It will also remove any user that has been granted the SELECT_CATALOG_ROLE privilege. So, if you've been granting privileges to a privileged user, be sure to change your password.


Having SELECT and INSERT privileges for table objects in a database is not enough to perform basic operations. In fact, having schema specific privileges allows you to perform specific actions on schema objects. To access these privileges, you must be an administrator or be granted the SYSDBA role. Generally, these privileges are granted to administrators only. However, they are also granted to users, so that they can perform specific tasks.

If you need to allow direct connections to schema objects but don't have the right user privileges, you can grant this role to the user. The role should be granted only during creation time and during maintenance windows. If you have revoked this role, users won't be able to connect to the database without a valid password. This provides a layer of security. Also, if you use a proxy connection to connect to the database, you can grant this role to a user with specific privileges.

As mentioned earlier, schema specific privileges are granted to users explicitly. As a result, you should be able to grant schema-specific privileges to users and prevent them from attempting to connect to other databases. However, the SYS schema is different from the normal database and therefore, it requires special privileges. To grant SYS schema users schema specific privileges, you must have admin privileges and the ability to use SYS DBA.


If you are not sure whether you have the necessary Sysdba specific privileges to use a Tablespace, you can run a test. To create an unused tablespace, you need to first grant a user with the DBA role the required privileges. For instance, you can create a temporary tablespace with the user name 'TEST'. To test whether you have the correct privileges, run a simple insert query, or use the DBA_TS_QUOTAS view.

The APPDEV role grants the user the ability to create schema objects and alter them. This role also grants the user CREATE TABLE and CREATE VIEW privileges. This role gives you access to the hr sample schema, which contains a sample tablespace. The tablespaces in this schema are used in example applications. Therefore, it is important to ensure that you have the appropriate privileges for this role.

The SYSDBA role grants all system privileges and the ability to grant others. In addition to this, the SYSDBA role also grants UNLIMITED TABLESPACE. The delete, execute, and select_catalog_role roles are implicit with this role. Previously, Oracle offered an internal mechanism for connecting to a Tablespace before you could use the connect as sysdba syntax. This method uses an obsolete command executable called svrmgrl.

Logging on as sysdba

When logging on as SYSDBA, you can change the privileges and execute commands in the SYSDBA role. This is particularly useful when you need to change the permissions or execute a script. However, if you are not the SYSDBA, you cannot change the privileges. SYSDBA can be assigned the administrative profile. The WITH ADMIN OPTION lets you change the privileges and determine which users are to be given this role. This option can be omitted when the SYSDBA is logged on as a non-administrative user.

If you are connected as a user, you must make sure that the account that you're using is part of the OSDBA group. This group is named dba by Unix and ORA_DBA by Windows. If you are using SQL*Plus, you can connect as SYS by specifying /localconnection from the DBA group. You can also select a password file.

You can also log in as a SYSDBA user by using the SYSTEM administrative user. Just make sure to add the word AS SYSDBA after your user name. Then, your SQL*Plus application will connect to the default database instance on your operating system. On Windows, Linux and UNIX, the default instance is specified by environment variables. You'll need to specify your user name and password before you can connect to the database.
