SQL Script to set permissions for a user on all views in a database?

Hi:

IS there any sort of SQL script I can run that will give a user all 4 permissions for every custom made view in a database?

Thanks,
Mitch

Yes you can... the syntax is such to grant all for guest on the view "Orders Qry" in the Northwind database.


GRANT ALL ON [Orders Qry] TO GUEST

no but what I am asking is, if I have 50 views in my database I don't want to run this query for each view..

you are going to have to write a while loop looping thru sysobjects. If you need help writing that, let me know.

Multiple ways to do this...  will this work for you..
You can limit the views by using a where clause to include/exclude certain schemas...


spool gen_grants.sql
set heading off
select ' grant insert,update,delete,select '   || ' on '  || owner ||  '.' || view_name || ';'
from dba_views;


Then run the gen_grants.sql file...

spool gen_grants.sql
set heading off
select ' grant insert,update,delete,select '   || ' on '  || owner ||  '.' || view_name || ' to put_use_here ;'
from dba_views;


Then run the gen_grants.sql file...

-- THIS WILL GRANT ALL PERMISSIONS TO ALL USER VIEWS TO A SPECIFIC USER
-- JUST CHANGE THE VARIABLE @USER TO WHATEVER USER YOU WANT
-- RUN THIS IN THE DATABASE YOU NEED TO AFFECT
DECLARE @user varchar(50)
SET @user = 'guest'

DECLARE @tmpName varchar(500)
DECLARE @sql varchar(8000)

DECLARE Objects_Cursor CURSOR FOR
SELECT name FROM sysobjects WHERE xtype = 'V' AND status > 0 ORDER BY name
OPEN Objects_Cursor
FETCH NEXT FROM Objects_Cursor
WHILE @@FETCH_STATUS = 0
BEGIN
      --SELECT @tmpName =
      FETCH NEXT FROM Objects_Cursor INTO @tmpName
      --PRINT @tmpName
      SET @sql = 'REVOKE ALL ON [' + @tmpName + '] TO ' + @user
      EXEC (@sql)
END
CLOSE Objects_Cursor
DEALLOCATE Objects_Cursor

Mitchell_Author Commented:
mikejrobison - that doesn't appear to loop in any way?

NaderYacoub  - that didn't work. It granted all on the TABLES, and revoked on all the views except for 1.

NaderYacoubCommented:
sorry.... I put revoke instead of grant... the adjusted code is below. also, this script will not even touch tables.

-- THIS WILL GRANT ALL PERMISSIONS TO ALL USER VIEWS TO A SPECIFIC USER
-- JUST CHANGE THE VARIABLE @USER TO WHATEVER USER YOU WANT
-- RUN THIS IN THE DATABASE YOU NEED TO AFFECT
DECLARE @user varchar(50)
SET @user = 'guest'

DECLARE @tmpName varchar(500)
DECLARE @sql varchar(8000)

DECLARE Objects_Cursor CURSOR FOR
SELECT name FROM sysobjects WHERE xtype = 'V' AND status > 0 ORDER BY name
OPEN Objects_Cursor
FETCH NEXT FROM Objects_Cursor
WHILE @@FETCH_STATUS = 0
BEGIN
     --SELECT @tmpName =
     FETCH NEXT FROM Objects_Cursor INTO @tmpName
     --PRINT @tmpName
     SET @sql = 'GRANT ALL ON [' + @tmpName + '] TO ' + @user
     EXEC (@sql)
END
CLOSE Objects_Cursor
DEALLOCATE Objects_Cursor
