Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-5292) SQLAuthorisation and views
Date Thu, 30 Jun 2011 09:54:30 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5292?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13057727#comment-13057727

Dag H. Wanvik commented on DERBY-5292:

The problem appears to be a missing definition in TableOperatorNode of disablePrivilegeCollection.
For views the premissions collection is disabled from tables in the query from-list with this
QueryTreeNode#disablePrivilegeCollection. In the repro, where explicit JOINs are used, the
disabling is not propagated down to the left and right tables of the join. The same error
would appear for other subclasses of TableOperatorNode, e.g. set operations.

>             Project: Derby
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: SQL

>            Reporter: Thomas Hill
>         Attachments: output.txt, script.txt
> Hi,
> in some cases there seem to be issues with SQLAuthorisation in conjunction with database
> Please see attached files as repro (script.txt has only the SQL I executed, output is
the output resulting when running the script). 
> I would think identical results should be returned in all cases and independent on how
the view has been defined, but this to my surprise not being the case:
> 1) Trying to select from view appl."VW_MyTasks" - which is a simple view defined on just
one table - leads to expected results, i.e. "my" tasks are being returned.
> 2) Trying to select from view appl."VW_MyPriorityTasks - which is a view defined on two
joined tables without using an inner join clause - leads to expected results, i.e. "my" priority
tasks are being returned.
> 3) Trying to select from view appl."VW2_MyPriorityTasks - which is the same view but
now the two tables joined using an inner join clause - leads to an error and no tasks returned
(when the same results as in 2) above were expected).
> 4) Trying to select from view appl."VW3_MyPriorityTasks" - which is a view defined using
a subselect - also unexpectedly leads to an error.
> Note: While I could rewrite each inner join clause with changing the syntax like in 2)
above, this provides a simple work-around for such cases. May be there is a work-around for
subselects also (not sure if every subselect could be rewritten to a join?). However when
depending on using EXISTS constructs in the query there unfortunately is no way (I would know
of) to get around this problem. Unfortuanetly a view that makes use of EXISTS is also one
I would need to define in my data base...
> Thanks
