How to add external users in Oracle 11g to a role?


We have a list of users that are Windows authenticated in sqlplus, but I cannot figure out a way to add them to a role so that they can execute a procedure. What is the command to add an external user to a role?

Procedure name = sp_test123  

SQL> grant execute on sp_test123 to Roleabc   <Granting execute to a role>

Rolename = Roleabc  

User1 = OPS$ABC\U1  

User2 = OPS$ABC\U2

Oracle Administration Assistant for Windows can create and grant local and external database roles to Windows domain users and global groups.

Should be the same way you grant the role to any user:
grant Roleabc to OPS$ABC\U1 ;

Looks like the '\' is an invalid character.  Try with double quotes:
grant Roleabc to "OPS$ABC\U1";
