How To Grant A Non-DBA User The Privilege To Grant QUOTA UNLIMITED On Specific Tablespaces To Other Users (Doc ID 2026956.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 13, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 11.2.0.1 to 12.1.0.2 [Release 11.2 to 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

You need to grant a non-DBA user the privilege to grant QUOTA UNLIMITED on specific tablespaces to other users.

You don't want to grant the user the UNLIMITED TABLESPACE privilege as you don't want the user to be able to grant quota on tablespaces like SYSTEM, SYSAUX etc.

The "ALTER USER ... QUOTA UNLIMITED ON <tablespace_name>" command does not have a "WITH ADMIN OPTION" clause.

How can you grant the user the required privilege ?
