When creating a new resource in the XDB repository, by default the resource gets assigned the same ACL as the parent folder. If this ACL does not match your requirements, or if you granted an incorrect one, how can you change this to point to a different ACL?

For example, if someone mistakenly assigns all_all_acl.xml to a resource, this will grant all privileges to all user to gain access to that resource.

CALL DBMS_XDB.setACL('/SYS/', '/sys/acls/all_all_acl.xml');

How can you quickly correct this?
