Hi there,

Is it possible to lock an oracle user out of the database between specific times of the day?

I have users who I want to log into Business Objects XI and run adhock reports at night, but during the working day not to refresh the reports or run new ones.

BOXI doesn't have the functionality to stop this happening - I was hoping that I could do something with a on-logon trigger or a dbms_jobs?

I've looked into this but I was hoping that someone would have some live experience or advice.

Thanks

Alison

Both are needed, the latter one to kill the current sessions at the beginning of the period and the former one to prevent from new user connections.

There are two solutions
1. User a job and schedule it for lock and unlock as per requirement.

2. User secure application roles and enable roles at specified times and grant this role to users.

Secure application role (one of my favorite features) do not prevent from connecting just from getting some roles (and maybe it is not possible to use them with BO, I don't know).
Being able to just connect may be sufficient to disturb or disrupt the reports.
A logon trigger is a better option, imo.

secure application roles can be used if system is design role base. I agree with you it can be use to enable disable privs. But a role can be specified object and system privs(create session).....

If an account has CREATE SESSION only in a secure applicatin role then it can NEVER connect as it must be connected to be able to activate the role.
So you cannot disable CREATE SESSION by a secure application role.
