How to make synonym useful for all users

Hi,
I have a database instance. It has say two users. User1 and User2.
Say User1 has a table Table1. I want it to be made available by User2 in terms of a synonym.
So I create a public synonym using dba priviliges.

create public synonym nt_Table1 for user1.Table1;

Now when I go into User2 and do a select  e.g

Select * from nt_Table1; I am unable to access that data.

But for sys login the same query returns me the data.
Please tell me as to why is this happening? What should I do so that the synonym returns me data even in User2 login.

Regards,
Anand

You need to GRANT privileges to user (or role) also.

GRANT select on table1 to user2;

or

create role tab_select;
grant select on table1 to tab_select;
grant tab_select to user1;

Synonyms and grants are two different things.  Synonyms are simply a shorter way of refering to an object, so you can use just the object name, rather than the full: "shema.object_name" syntax when you are in a different schema.  But, the Oracle security rules still apply.  User2 cannot access objects in User1's schema whether synonyms exist for them or not, if User1 has not granted permission to User2 to use them.

hi there

well what u have done is just created an alias for a table. u have give permission to other users who can access the table using the alias name

create public synonym <syn.name> for <tablename>;

grant all on <syn.name> to public;
will grant all priviliges to the table ie select, insert, delete, update for all users.

or

grant select on <syn.name> to public;
will grant select priviliges to the table ie select, insert, delete, update for all users.

or

grant select on <syn.name> to <username>;
will grant select priviliges to the table ie select, insert, delete, update for a specific user.

hope the above solves ur purpose.

grant insert on <syn.name> to public;
grant update on <syn.name> to public;
grant delete on <syn.name> to public;

will grant individual priviliges to the table for all users.

or

grant select on <syn.name> to <username>;
grant insert on <syn.name> to <username>;
grant update on <syn.name> to <username>;
grant delete on <syn.name> to <username>;

will grant individual priviliges for a specific user.
