    Hi Gurus,

    What is the difference between the views DBA_SYS_PRIVS and SESSION_PRIVS ?

    Can you give an example?

    Thanks a lot.

    DBA_SYS_PRIVS contains all system privileges held by all users or roles.

    SESSION_PRIVS displays all system privileges that user has for that session whether it is from a role or from a direct grant

    Ex: Say your username is USER amd you have access to a role called ROLE and it contains CREATE SESSION, CREATE USER, CREATE TABLE, CREATE INDEX. If you do a select on SESSION_PRIVS you will get a list of these privileges.

    But if you do a select on DBA_SYS_PRIVS you will not see USER as having access to these privileges but you will see ROLE as having access to them

    Basicaly SESSION_PRIVS is used to see what privileges you have been granted whether it be directly or by a role, and DBA_SYS_PRIVS shows all privileges granted and to what user or role

    Hope Ididn't ramble too bad and this helps you out
