Inconsistent Error Message Between 11202 And 11204 - ORA-01919 , ORA-1031 (Doc ID 2145239.1)

Last updated on JUNE 05, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 11.2.0.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

In 11.2.0.4 DB, generic error message ORA-1031 displayed in place of a specific error message ORA-01919.
But in earlier versions 11.2.0.3 and 11.2.0.2 DB, we get the specific error ORA-01919.

In 11202 and 11203 DB, error message is ORA-01919: role 'ABCDEF' does not exist
But in 11204 DB, error message is ORA-01031: insufficient privileges.

What is the reason for Inconsistent error message between 11202/11203 and 11204 Database versions ?
