Perennial Grant Select On Schema

I want a certain user to have SELECT privileges on all tables in a particular schema.  If new tables are added to that schema I want to user to have SELECT privilege without having to issue a new GRANT SELECT for the new table.  Is this possible?

Its possible but for that you need to do something at user level..

something like creating a trigger on table creation ..

this will check if the table is created and then it will automatically grant select to the table for the schema you want .. replace the <USER> with your user name


CREATE OR REPLACE TRIGGER bcs_trigger
BEFORE CREATE
 ON SCHEMA

DECLARE
  oper ddl_log.operation%TYPE;
var_sql varchar2(1000);
BEGIN
IF ORA_DICT_OBJ_TYPE ='TABLE' THEN
var_sql:='GRANT SELECT ON';
var_sql:=var_sql||'ora_dict_obj_owner.'||'ora_dict_obj_name'||' TO '|| '<USER>';
   EXECUTE IMMEDIATE var_sql;
END;
END;
