What is the absolute minimum access would I need to an Oracle database in order to import a system table from that database?


If you have to be an admin or something, is there a way to still restrict the account's access to Read or something very limited?


Thanks!

If you have an export file that only contains tables, and you are importing into the schema that you are connecting with, based on a simple test I did, you should need:

CREATE SESSION
CREATE TABLE
READ on the directory to be specified in the DIRECTORY parameter on impdp

If you have objects other than just tables, the user would need create privileges for those object types as well.

If you are importing system objects, I would go with the predefined role, DATAPUMP_IMP_FULL_DATABASE.  It is a pretty powerful role, but you need power to import objects you don't own.
