Hello all,

I have one database say 'A' and  there is a table called 'tb1' under a schema 'SC1'.
if there is another database called 'B'  in another server and there is a schema 'SC2'. My requirement is  to give the read-only access to the table 'tb1' in SC1 from  the schema 'SC2' in database 'B'? can you please suggest how to make this work?

in A -

create a user READ_TB1_USER that has select privilege on SC1.TB1 and create session and no other privileges.

create user read_tb1_user identified by pa55w0rd;
grant select on sc1.tb1 to read_tb1_user;
grant create session to read_tb1_user;

Open in new window




in B - create a private db link to A connecting as READ_TB1_USER


create database link tb1_link
connect to read_tb1_user
identified by "pa55w0rd"
using 'B';

Open in new window

you could create a role in A to contain the privileges and assign the role to the new user instead of direct assignment.

also, you might want to create a private synonym owned by the new user that points to sc1.tb1,  that way the B user doesn't need to know or use the remote schema

create role test_role;
grant select on sc1.tb1 to test_role;
grant create session to test_role;
grant test_role to read_tb1_user;
create synonym tb1 for sc1.tb1;

yss..if yu create a synonym to that new user ..then how the SC2 schema  in B database can see the table 'tb1' under SC1 schema in the different database '.B'..    
SC2 schema should query something from the SC1.TB1, rather than read_tb1_user

I'm not sure what you're asking; but if you don't want to use the synonym,  that's fine.

like the role,  it's entirely optional

No..I am saying about your 1st solution..creating another user and granting select to that table..in this way the SCHEMA in 'B' dataabase has to query something like  SC1.TB1..i thnk with your answer the schema in 'B' wil select something like 'SC1.read_tb1_user'(WITH THE NEW CREATED USER?)

in B


select * from sc1.tb1@tb1_link


the other user is never referenced in the sql,  it only exists for the purpose of limiting the db link privileges

or,  if you create the synonym in A owned by read_tb1_user


in B


select * from tb1@tb1_link

why the B?  

Penalty grades are not appropriate if you haven't asked for followup.  Especially when they lack explanation as to what is missing
