Was surprised to see that session_roles for super user sys was empty but of course this user has all the privileges that go into the standart set of roles that are typically created with a new database anyway. But, does anyone know why session_privs dosen't show the privileges SYSDBA or SYSOPER. I am aware that these two privileges cannot be granted to roles since roles are not available before databse startup but don't see why they should not be listed in session_privs.
