Kathey Marsden updated DERBY-3928:

    Component/s: SQL

> SQL roles: Enable the use of StatementRolePermission
> ----------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: DERBY-3928
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3928
>             Project: Derby
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: SQL
>            Reporter: Dag H. Wanvik
> A privilege to CREATE and DROP roles (StatementRolePermission) was
> added as part of the initial roles implementation. 
> The permission was added to prepare for future need to grant this
> privilege. However, it is not being used for checking whether
> CREATE/DROP role is allowed yet. The current code just tests if the
> executing session is the database owner instead of checking that the
> session has the role create/drop privilege).
> Making use of the permission would not yield any new functionality,
> but would prepare the way for delegating this privilege to other
> users. Furthermore, there is as yet no syntax for granting or revoking
> this privilege (only the database owner is supposed to enjoy it for
> now).
