When using Data Pump Export, or legacy Export, warnings are noticed in the log output, e.g.

Data Pump Export:

ORA-39181: Only partial table data may be exported due to fine grain access control

Legacy Export:

EXP-00079: Data in table "TAB" is protected. Conventional path may only be exporting partial table.

If EXEMPT ACCESS POLICY is granted to the user performing the export, no such warning is received. How can it be predicted if the EXEMPT ACCESS POLICY privilege is needed prior to the export occurring?
