Creating Oracle Application Roles
February 7, 2004
Mark Rittman

"I am facing some problem while creating roles for a user.

I have an user say "Test1". I wanna create 3 different roles for this user say. "roleRead", "rolewrite" and "roleAll". Can you provide me the details of creating roles and how to assign access controls ( Readonly, Read/Write, and all) to these roles?"

In Oracle, you can create roles by using the following command;

CREATE ROLE roleRead IDENTIFIED BY <password>;
CREATE ROLE roleWrite IDENTIFIED BY <password>;
CREATE ROLE roleALL IDENTIFIED BY <password>;

The INDENTIFIED BY part is optional and specifies that the role can only be worked with if a password is specified.

Next, you assign object priviledges to the role. Assuming that one of your tables that you wish to control access to is called CUSTOMERS, you'd assign the priviledges as follows;

GRANT select ON customers TO roleRead;

GRANT insert, update ON customers To roleWRITE;

GRANT insert, update, delete, select ON customers to roleALL;

If you had more tables than CUSTOMER to grant privileges on, you'd repeat the above statements for each table you want to control access to.

Then, for your user you wished to assign roles to, you would carry out the following (all roles are cumulative);

GRANT roleRead TO test1;

GRANT roleWrite to test1;

GRANT roleALL to test;1

and to revoke these privileges you would issue the commands;

REVOKE roleRead FROM test1;

REVOKE roleWrite FROM test1;

REVOKE roleALL from test1;

To be honest, these are pretty fundamental Oracle concepts, and you'd do well to take a look at the online documentation. In particular, take a look at
