It is around a security restriction and I cannot be more specific than that. It is a precautionary measure as users could do what they need during legitimately allowed access periods No matter how good your monitoring and alerting is there is always a delay whereas if you stop access first you don’t need to monitor and alert (for that specific issue of course)

Sorry to be a pain, but instead of answering your question can I ask one instead? Who are these users? Are they really a problem and if so what is the problem you have identified? My preference is always to give everyone as much hassle free access to my databases as possible. I have plenty of monitoring and alerting in place for the trouble makers. Just wondering, perhaps there is a better solution than locking out users here.
