Hi,

Can you tell me what privilege is require for a user to execute explain plan?

I get below error while try to execute explain plan.

SQL> explain plan for SELECT /*+ FULL(t) */ COUNT(*) FROM "DREAM"."CONSUMER.TAB" t WHERE ROWNUM <= 1000000;
explain plan for SELECT /*+ FULL(t) */ COUNT(*) FROM "DREAM"."CONSUMER.TAB" t WHERE ROWNUM <= 1000000
                                                             *
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-01031: insufficient privileges

Jack

unwilling or incapable to simply Read The Fine Manual yourself?

hi

first you need to follow these steps

-- Creating a shared PLAN_TABLE prior to 11g
SQL> CONN sys/password AS SYSDBA
Connected
SQL> @$ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin/utlxplan.sql
SQL> GRANT ALL ON sys.plan_table TO public;
SQL> CREATE PUBLIC SYNONYM plan_table FOR sys.plan_table;

then
SQL>EXPLAIN PLAN SET STATEMENT_ID = <statement_id> FOR your-sql-statement; it will genareate explain plan along with you statement id and plan information stored in plan table(plan_table).
SQL>select * from plan_table where STATEMENT_ID = <statement_id>;

Thanks,
Vij

1/ This does not explain the error.
2/ Create the PLAN_TABLE in your ownr schema, do NOT use SYS one for this.
3/ Please read OraFAQ Forum Guide and How to use [code] tags and make your code easier to read.
Make sure that lines of code do not exceed 80 characters when you format.
Indent the code, use code tags and align the columns in result.
Use the "Preview Message" button to verify.

4/ Feedback to those that answer to your questions.

Regards
Michel

Make it create by a DBA.

2. Query DBA_TABLES. But you can always run the script it will drop the previous table (and then you are sure to have the latest one).

you need to run these steps as SYS user

-- Creating a shared PLAN_TABLE prior to 11g
SQL> CONN sys/password AS SYSDBA
Connected
SQL> @$ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin/utlxplan.sql
SQL> GRANT ALL ON sys.plan_table TO public;
SQL> CREATE PUBLIC SYNONYM plan_table FOR sys.plan_table;


then run the explain plan statement in normal user mode.
no need to create the plan_table in normal user mode.

Thanks,
Vij
