ORA-01031: insufficient privileges

Hi,

I've recently installed Oracle10g and I'm testing some of our App DBA scripts but I'm running into "Insufficient Privileges" errors.  In Oracle8i and 9i, I granted our schema owner the following privs:

grant connect to schema_owner;
grant unlimited tablespace to schema_owner;
grant create any trigger to schema_owner;
grant create any procedure to schema_owner;
grant create public database link to schema_owner;
grant drop public database link to schema_owner;
grant create public synonym to schema_owner;
grant drop public synonym to schema_owner;
grant create role to schema_owner;
grant drop any role to schema_owner;

With these grants, specifically the unlimited tablespace, I was able to create any database object as the schema_owner…..sequences, tables, indexes, procs, funcs, trigs, etc.  Besides granting the schema_owner everything under the sun, is there a role in Oracle10g that applies to schema owners ?  Any best practices ?

Thanks,
Frank

Hi Mike,

My schema owner also needs to create jobs.  For Oracle10g, I noticed the role scheduler_admin.   The other important thing is that I need to ensure that these scripts will continue to work in Oracle8i and 9i.

Thanks,
Frank

There is no scheduler in 8i and 9i, but you could create a scheduler_admin role with 'CREATE ANY JOB' privilege in these versions.

-- OR --

Temporarily GRANT DBA privilege and after installation revoke DBA.

You many want this to give

grant SELECT ANY DICTIONARY to Schema_Owner; because somewhere down the line you may need it because some of your scripts might be trying some data dictionary view of SYS.

Thanks

you may also want to try :

SELECT_CATALOG_ROLE
EXECUTE_CATALOG_ROLE
DELETE_CATALOG_ROLE

Search for the above words in the below URL:

grant create role to schema_owner;
This is not enough.

Try this:
grant create table to schema_owner;
This must be granted from sys schema

If this works for you, I'll explain it.
