I need to view the code from packages information in Schema B from Schema A. I created a view for the packages in owner Schema A and granted select privileges to all the views in Schema A to Schema B. I created synonyms in Schema B and was able to see the code from user schema A as well as connecting as SYSTEM. I connected to Schema B and I am able to view the code from some of the synonyms that were created in Schema B, but I am unable to see the code in other synonyms in schema B as it returns with no rows selected even though I see there is code in the synonym when checked as SYSTEM user. What could be the reason? Are there any privileges that are missing. How can I view some packages and not the others? It is really confusing. Any help is appreciated.

>It is really confusing.
I agree.

A whole lot of movement & even some progress.
Since we can't see what you actually did & the state of your DB, your mystery remains unsolved.

It might have been easier for you to write a simple procedure in SchemaA which can list the content any package owned by schemaA.
Then GRANT EXECUTE ON SEE_MY_PACKAGE TO schemaB.

The reason why I am creating a synonyms is to have a read only code of these packages. I should not have the execute privilege on these packages. Since there are several packages, I wrote a script that generates the views for these packages and then the same is being created as synonyms in other schema. But in the other schema, I am able to view only a few synonyms and not all of them. Thanks for your quick response.

Not unreasonable.

>I should not have the execute privilege on these packages.
Agreed, but I did not suggest otherwise.

>I wrote a script that generates the views for these packages and then the same is being created as synonyms in other schema.

>But in the other schema, I am able to view only a few synonyms and not all of them.
Either error of commission or error of omission, but we have NOTHING to determine what might be amiss.
Something is different between those that work & those that don't,
but you have posted nothing to allow us to know which is which.

Please read carefully & consider this suggestion below:

It might have been easier for you to write a simple procedure (SEE_MY_PACKAGE) owned by SchemaA which can LIST the content any package owned by schemaA.
Then GRANT EXECUTE ON SEE_MY_PACKAGE TO schemaB.

Can you provide an example on how to capture the package. Thanks

I leave it to you to generalize to handle any package.

If you posted EXACTLY what you can see and what yuo can't maybe we can help.

I bet you can see proc├ędure and package specification code but not package body. If this is the issue, it is the expected behaviour.

I would like to see all packages, package body and procedures from one of my schema into another schema. Is it possible to have all the source from one schema into another as read only? If it is possible, then how can we achieve this task. If not, is there any other way to get the above in some other way?

What has BlackSwan posted you?
The answer is NO unless you use BlackSwan's procedure.

Hi,
I guess "SELECT ANY DICTIONARY" privilege might help you but it would mean the schema having this privilege would be able to see package/function/procedure definitions for all the schemas.
