Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1632) When a revoke privilege is issued, the affected objects before dropping themselves should see if there is any other replacement privilege
Date Fri, 01 Sep 2006 22:01:22 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1632?page=comments#action_12432247 ] 
            
Daniel John Debrunner commented on DERBY-1632:
----------------------------------------------

This a bug, not an improvement?

SQL Standard 12.7 SR 20) says the view would be abandoned if it no longer has the required
permissions.
Thus if the required permissions still exist after the REVOKE statement the view should not
be dropped
and Derby will drop it in various situations as described above.

>             Project: Derby
>          Issue Type: Improvement

> Currently, when an object (trigger/constraint/view) is created, it depends on the available
required privilege at the user level. If none found, it depends on the available required
privilege at PUBLIC level. If none exist both at user level or PUBLIC level, then create object
fails.
> To reiterate, if the privilege is found say at the user level, the object depends on
that privilege. Consider the case, where the privilege also exist at the PUBLIC level. Later,
when a revoke privilege is issued at the user level, the dependent object gets a revoke invalidation
action and the dependent object drops itself. Instead, the dependent object should make itself
depend on the PUBLIC level privilege. This does not happen in Derby at this point and would
be a very useful feature.
> eg for the problem at hand
> user1
> create table t1
> grant select on t1 to user2, public
> user2
> create view v1 as select * from user1.t1
> -- this view will depend on the user level select privilege on table t1
> user1
> revoke select on t1 from user2
> -- this revoke will end up dropping the view. The view could have made itself depend
on the PUBLIC level select privilege
> --  on t1 but that doesn't happen currently
> another eg for the same problem
> user1
> create table t1
> grant select on t1 to public
> user2
> create view v1 as select * from user1.t1
> -- this view will depend on the PUBLIC level select privilege on table t1
> user1
> grant select on to to user2
> revoke select on t1 from public
> -- this revoke ends up dropping the view user2.v1 eventhough there is a user level SELECT
privilege availble
> --  on user1.t1
> So, in brief, the problem is that when a dependent object gets a revoke invalidation
action, it does not check if there is another privilege available to replace the privilege
being revoked. Instead, they just go ahead and drop themselves.
> Until we fix this behavior, we should document it so the user will know what to expect
for same privilege being available at different levels.
