Aren't the Discoverer EUL tables granted to PUBLIC?

If the users are gone why are you not performing a drop user x?

Or at the very least why not lock the user accounts then you can leave the associated privileges in place without worry the privileges will be used.

Tried that. No such luck.

Can you do an 'alter session set current_schema=$EUL_SCHEMA' and then issue the revokes?

Hey all,

I'm working on a little something where I need to revoke all access given to users that are no longer with the company. Roles are no problem. I keep on having issues with tables, though.

We use Discoverer and privs are granted directly to the users on EUL tables. I keep on getting the "ORA-01927: cannot REVOKE privileges you did not grant" error. I expected this. However, why is it that I can revoke these privs through OEM Grid Control and not via a simple procedure run in SQL Plus (conneted as the same user)? Any ideas?

OS - AIX 5.3.9 Thanks in Advance!
