Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-5329) Document who is allowed to run which system procedures/functions.
Date Mon, 18 Jul 2011 16:00:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5329?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13067100#comment-13067100

Dag H. Wanvik commented on DERBY-5329:

The answer to the first question is "yes". On number two, technically, SQL authorization can
be enabled without authentication in Derby, but it is rather pointless since all users can
pretend to be anyone, including the DBO. I.e. authentication can be meaningfully used without
SQL authorization, but the opposite is not true. I guess our present wording is a bit verbose
(and technically wrong: for execution privileges one does need to at least *pretend* to be
the dbo - by connecing as dbo), it makes more sense. So I suggest we continue to use what
we currently have: "If authentication and SQL authorization are both enabled, ...".

> The 5th functional spec attached to DERBY-464 contains a table describing which system
procedures/functions can only be run by the DBO and which can be run by everyone. I can't
find this information in our user guides. It would be good to copy this information into the
Reference Guide topics for each of these procedures/functions.
