Hello Forum
One of my business user want to see the DDL of tables and indexes, so I granted him 'select catalog'. But with this privilege he is not able to extract DDL for indexes. Then I escalated the privelge to 'select any table'. This solved his problem about extracting DDL for indexes. But this privilege is too risky and he need some privelege between these two.

Can anybody please suggest something

Thanks a lot

Ask him why does it need this.
I don't see any reason a business user has to see DDL.

The tables are often created or modified in that database. So he need to take some dynamic decisions based on that structure.
Thas why he need to see the DDL of tables and indexes.

Thanks a lot

Write a small PL/SQL procedure owned by a schema with necessary privs & GRANT EXECUTE to BI_USER on SHOW_DDL procedure.

Is there anyway we can solve this problem without jumping for procedure and just somehow trace a optimum privilege.

Thanks n advance.
