Hi,

If I have created a package 'A' and I need to grant the following permissions on 'A' to a role 'R' how do I write this in SQL, the persmissions I need are..

1) Drop both package body and header.
2) Allow Compile.
3) Execute permissions.
4) Change the package code.

Thanks Ian

For droping the package of others schema   the role  should have a  DROP ANY PROCEDURE system  privilege.
for compile and exeting the package the role should have execute and debug and execute object privilege on that object
Grant DROP ANY PROCEDURE to R;
Grant execute,debug on A to R

The above comment is correct.  I wish to throw in a professional observation that granting such system-level privileges is a security violation in many shops -- especially when you want to give someone other than the data (schema) owner permission to change DDL.  Please, please reconsider your "need" to be so lax.
Kind regards,

Hi,

Agreed in a working (BUAT/live) environment you would not want to grant these privileges however I am setting up a development environment for a offshore resource who may need to alter, drop, and compile...

Thanks Ian

"For droping the package of others schema   the role  should have a  DROP ANY PROCEDURE system  privilege." - Is it possible just to grant drop privileges on a single package..?
