Hi

When I tried this query--->desc dba_users or select username from dba_users;
I am getting this message___->ERROR:
ORA-04043: object dba_users does not exist


It used to work before but all of a sudden I got this error.

Any help would be appreciated to resolve this.

thanks in advance.

Your DBA probably revoked your grant on the dba_ tables. Ask your DBA to assign the view catalog role to you.Then you shd be to access the dba_ views

You can find out privileges currently enabled by running a query against SESSION_PRIVS view. This view will help you to determine exactly which privileges are currently enabled. And, you don't need DBA privileges to query this view.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

you might lost this view by accident, try to run the following  script to restore it:

@<oracle_home>/rdbms/admin/catalog.sql
