Introduction

The Database Administrators (DBAs) can set the permissions or privileges required for users to monitor the database.

As an administrator, the minimum privileges can be set or modified for an existing or a new user according to the platform that is specific to your database.

Providing unrestricted access to the database can pose a threat to the security of all database objects such as tables, indexes, and views. Using privileges, you can assign privileged roles to any user account to maintain the availability, integrity, and confidentiality of the database objects.

The following tables describe the minimum privileges that can be set.
