Hi I have query on Sybase DBA ....

Basically I need to create list of tables on sybase database with having permissions from each user group...
i.e.
columns
- table name
- user group 1
- user group 2
- user group 3..

values
- table name
- read
- write/execute

or something. So far I do not see good way to generate such a report.
For format itself I do not mind too much , would somebody please help me how I can workout?

Are the number of groups fixed (and small)? Are you only considering groups? What about permissions granted individually to single users, and to server-wide roles?

Hi Joe,

Numbers of groups fixed, say 5 or 6. And I am considering groups only as there should not have any individual to have special permission. But to server wide like to double check .... (if not too difficult) but I am fine without server wide..

Take a look at the source text for sp_helprotect in sybsystemprocs. It will give you most of what you want. From there it's a fairly simple matter to turn it into a crosstab of the sort you want.

I can't get in front of an ASE just at the moment or I'd have some SQL for you. I'll have a go later. :)

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

thank you very much, this outcome looks useful to me, I can use excel to sort this result for my purpose.
I can't read such a SP in short time in proper way, but if you could give me example for my future would you please?

I'll go through this in several steps, especially as I don't have an ASE to actually test any of this in! :)

The information you want is in sysprotects (in each database). We can get a very basic form like this, in code #1 below:

That will produce output like this:

table1    group1    select
table1    group1    insert
table1    group2    select
[etc]

If you're extracting into Excel or some other spreadsheet that should be all you need for what you want here. We can do it natively in SQL but I'm reluctant to try without an ASE to run it in... (don't want to give you bad SQL!)

-- #1
 

select    o.name as "Object name"

,         u.name as "User/group name"

,         case when p.action = 193 then "select"

               when p.action = 195 then "insert"

               when p.action = 196 then "delete"

               when p.action = 197 then "update"

               when p.action = 224 then "execute"

               else "other"

          end as "Permission"

from      sysobjects o

,         sysprotects p

,         sysusers u

where     o.id = p.id

and       p.uid = u.uid

order by  o.name, u.name, p.action
