I want to list all of the roles available in the database - This is for a maintenance form to create new users.  I want to allow someone to type in a user and password, and then click the checkboxes of the roles that they should be granted.  The problem is that with the wizard I can't find the DBA_ROLES as a table or a view to base the block on.  

Anyone got any idea how to do this.

You would need (select) permission to DBA_ROLES granted to the user executing the 'maintenance form'

just log in as SYSDBA

SQL>connect / as sysdba

SQL>select role from dba_roles;


or grant the log in user "select_catalog_role"


SQL>connect / as sysdba
SQL>grant select_catalog_role to <user_name>;

then log in as <user_name> to select from dba_roles....
