Last updated on SEPTEMBER 09, 2017
Applies to:Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 22.214.171.124 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
On 12c R2 no error occurs, the user doesn't get access to the Secured roles.
The session_roles doesn't show the assigned secured roles.
To revert to old behavior "_enable_secure_sub_role" (a hidden parameter) need to be enabled.
From 126.96.36.199 onward, the secure roles (if they are sub-roles) are not enabled (unlike in 12.1) by default. To revert to old behavior "_enable_secure_sub_role" (a hidden parameter) need to be enabled.
