Good idea. Unfortunately, I tried it and it didn't work.

If I understood correctly your problem is that you can't do a revoke from inside a stored proc? If this is correct then you might be facing an "issue" that privileges granted through roles are not in effect inside the stored proc. OEM does that through SQL statement, not stored proc.

If you do

grant grant any object privilege to <the user which does a revoke>

does the problem remain?
