I will explain dbms_lock.sleep Grant Execute Privilege in Oracle in this post.
dbms_lock.sleep Grant Execute Privilege in Oracle
Developers or some database users want to use and run dbms_lock.sleep but they are not allowed to grant EXECUTE privilege on the whole package but can grant for specific procedure in the package.
grant execute on sys.dbms_lock
You can give this permission to the users as follows.
SQL> grant execute on sys.dbms_lock to MSDBA; Grant succeeded. SQL> grant execute on sys.dbms_lock to BIGDATA; Grant succeeded. SQL>
Sometimes you can get the following error while granting this privilige.
We could not grant privilege directly to non-DBA users due to the following error:
SQL> conn <user_name>/<password> as sysdba Connected. SQL> GRANT EXECUTE ON sys.dbms_lock.sleep TO appuser; GRANT EXECUTE ON sys.dbms_lock.sleep TO appuser * ERROR at line 1: ORA-00905: missing keyword
But we can create another procedure under SYS and then grant the privilege to a non-DBA users with below steps:
-- create appuser user: create user appuser identified by <PASSWORD>; grant resource, connect to appuser; alter user appuser account unlock; -- create usersleep() procedure CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE sys.usersleep(n in number) IS BEGIN DBMS_LOCK.sleep(n); END; / -- grant privilege GRANT EXECUTE ON sys.usersleep TO appuser; -- Test Result: SQL> show user USER is "APPUSER" SQL> SQL> exec sys.usersleep(5); -- Wait 5s -- PL/SQL procedure successfully completed.
