Data Redaction Not Affecting SYS (Doc ID 2874073.1)

Last updated on APRIL 17, 2023

Applies to:

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


Trying to create a Data Redaction policy that would affect the SYS user.

As users SYS and SYSTEM automatically have the EXEMPT REDACTION POLICY system privilege, when a policy is created, these users are not affected by the policy.

Can we revoke the EXEMPT DATA REDACTION system privilege from SYS?  If this is not possible, is there another way to mask data from the SYS access?
