I have a procedure sitting in a schema with definer rights and I only want it to be able to be run from the XYZ user who is accessing the procedure through a database link. The procedure is not in the schema that is being connected to through the database link. I have checked everywhere I can think of and I haven't found anything. I want the information directly from oracle so the calling user can't be faked by passing a password or something like that. Anyone have any ideas. Just a little background. The database link is going into a read only schema. The procedure works just fine using definer rights but I want to lock it down so only the specific user can call it.

Do you want the original user that calls the procedure or the user you are connected to the remote database through the database link.
I mean if user USERA in database A connects to database B with user USERB through the database link, do you want USERA or USERB?

I want usera in the other database. Userb would be simple using v$session or USER. Thanks for getting back to me

I don't think this information (USERA) is passed to the remote database (B) when activating the database link.

Unfortunately I think your right, I couldn't find anything that would show it. I appreciate your looking into it.

I set up a test case and then searched in all X$ tables of remote database (B) nowhere the original caller (USERA) is in.
I think it is possible to get it using a reverse database link and, using the global transaction id, return back to the source of this one but how this would be reliable?

I agree. Thanks for the effort. I couldn't find out any way to do it either

You said 10g, is that both databases? If the remote database is 12.x you might do this with unified audit, which shows the audsid from the source database in unified_audit_trail.additional_info that should match the v$session.audsid in the source database.

Unfortunately it is between 10g and 8i

We are planning to upgrade the application (hopefully within the year) to Oracle 19
