Why Does a Non-Container Database (Non-CDB) Contain Common User Privileges? (Doc ID 2260178.1)

Last updated on MAY 04, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 12.1.0.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Is it expected behavior to have common and local user privileges in a non-container database (non-CDB)?

For example, in DBA_ROLE_PRIVS, DATAPUMP_EXP_FULL_DATABASE appears twice, because one row has COMMON = NO, and the other has COMMON = YES:

Explanation of the COMMON columns:

YES if the role was granted commonly (CONTAINER=ALL was used)
NO if the role was granted locally (CONTAINER=ALL was not used)
