While navigating to DBA menu on the Security option, the first time you start to drill down "Users" you get the following error:

ORA-00904: "ALL_SHARD" : Invalid identifier

For Example:


Steps to Reproduce:

1. Connect to database.

2. Go to menu option View --> DBA

3. Navigate to Security --> Users

4. Need to navigate in and out of the user's node a couple of times.
    That is, expand on user A (in this sample AISDBA) and its branches.
    Then move to user B (in this sample ANGIE) and expand it.
    Move back to user A.

5. Now error appears.



 This is seen with SQL Developer 17.4. Problem does not reproduce with SQL Developer 17.3.
