Users of one Schema [message #296716] Mon, 28 January 2008 18:45 Go to next message

In our Oracle 9i Database we have a Project that uses one Schema called ProjectOne where several people need to be able to create tables, create,edit and delete records, create and delete triggers and sequences in the ProjectOne schema.

Our DBA creates a user account for each person where each person has their own username and password with priviledges to the ProjectOne Schema. The DBA doesnt want us to use the ProjectOne Schema username and password. Is this a standard practice with Oracle where each person needs their own username and password to login into the Database and view and edit one Schema (ProjectOne)?

Different DBAs work in different ways, but this does not sound highly unusual to me. It would assist with auditability.

It is a good security practice that each use has his personal account.
Noone (but DBA) should be able to create/drop objects in another schema.
Of course, users may be able to modify data in application schema if the business needs require it.

My advice is that application owner account (projectone) should be locked and password invalidated. There is no reason to connect with this user, it is just a namespace for application objects.
