    Create Read-Only User for Accessing Aleph Oracle Tables


    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20, 21, 22, 23
    • Relevant for Installation Type: Dedicated-Direct, Direct, Local, Total Care



    Desired Outcome Goal:
    Create an Oracle user with read-only (SELECT) access to tables already associated with an existing user.
    For example, if the bib library is XXX01, what is the proper way to create a new user 'XXX01_QRY' with permission to execute SELECT's against the tables associated with XXX01?
    Are there read-only users in the standard version of the system?


    1. create user SYS01_QRY identified by SYS01_QRY_PW;
    2. grant CREATE SESSION to SYS01_QRY; (for oracle 10-up)
    3. grant select any table to SYS01_QRY;
    No read-only users are included in the as-delivered version of the system.


    NOTE:  an alternative to the above method is to use util w/5 to put Aleph in read-only mode.  See the article "Putting Aleph in Read-Only Mode during cutover to new instance".
