Re: Using a trigger to turn on tracing

Hi peter,

Not a direct answer to your question as i believe the answer to have
already been given, "alter session"

If you go to my site i have a script that lists out all the privileges
granted to a user including system, object and role privs. It also
prints out hierarchically those privileges granted through roles. It can
print out its results to either the screen or to a file. Follow the
prompts. I thought you might like it to check your user and whether the
privileges are granted direct or through a role. Here is an example for
the user OUTLN:
