Hi All,

Hope all is well,

I have a small doubt on Tablespace Quota.

We do assign Quota on TBS by ALTER USER xyz QUOTA UNLIMITED ON <name>;
Why we cant do the same with GRANT QUOTA UNLMITED... method.

Regards
Muktha

I'd say because Oracle said so.

Because a quota is not a privilege.

A quota is a limit on the amount of resource one can use.

Hi Gazzag,

Thanks, but How can we are able to grant privs like 'GRANT UNLMITED TABLESPACE TO <user>.
What is the diff.

Thanks
Muktha

The difference is that oracle decided it should be that way. This really isn't something worth worrying about and you're unlikely to get a definitive answer.

If I had to guess, "UNLIMITED TABLESPACE" sounds more like a privilege than a limit/quota. But as cookiemonster says, I doubt it is worth worrying about Smile

It's just an historical anomaly. Back in release 5 (if I remember correctly) there was only CONNECT for the users; RESOURCE for the developers; and DBA for us. So you gave the developers a quota.
Then the ANSI/ISO syntax for GRANT and REVOKE of privileges came along. There's no ISO syntax for assigning a quota.
