    3rd party apps

    Hi,

    I'm a dba and I want to connect to one of my users apps schema without
    knowing her/his password. How do I do it?

    like connect scott.

    Is it grant become user to system?


    Thanks

    Hi,

    Connect to the database with the user who is having DBA roles and change the password of your user in off peak hours(when user is not there). Then perform your activity and again set the original password by its value on the database.

    e.g.

    conn system/manager
    sql>select username,password from dba_users where username='SCOTT';

    USERNAME PASSWORD
    ------------------------------ ------------------------------
    SCOTT 7304D3DD7C141581

    SQL> alter user scott identified by dhaval;

    User altered.


    ----------- Perform your activities -----------------------

    SQL> alter user sdasari identified by values '7304D3DD7C141581';

    User altered.

    I hope this will solve your problem.

    Thanks

    dangerous if the user tries to connect while you have changed your password

    why do you need to connect as the user? as a dba you can see all their objects

    I am not sure that will work in 8i. In 7 works for sure but since some later release "identified by value" will work only with crate user but not with alter

    Dave, try that in 9i ( alter user .. IDENTIFIED BY VALUE I mean not just alter user. Alter user work for sure, but the ugly crack IDENTIFIED BY VALUE will not work in 9i for sure)
