Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-4191) Lack of SELECT privilege does not prevent SELECT COUNT(*)
Date Wed, 18 Nov 2009 17:00:39 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4191?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12779525#action_12779525

Mamta A. Satoor commented on DERBY-4191:

Thanks for your comment on this jira, Rick. I was starting to look at the jira and was thinking
about what privileges would be required. 

It seems like Derby has a SELECT level privilege for the table (I think that gets used for
instance when somebody attempts to lock the table) and I thought that is what would be required
for count(*) or count(1). But it seems like SQL-spec is saying that SELECT privilege on any
column of the table is enough. I think that does make sense because a user can easily get
count(*) equivalent by going count(columnwithselectprivilege) and hence it should be fine
to have select privilege on any column to do count(*) or count(1) equivalent.

on that table. Counting a specific column (e.g., SELECT COUNT(X)) is prevented.
