Notes

OWNERSHIP

Packages policy

OWNERSHIP is a special privilege on an object that is automatically granted to the role that created the object, but can also be transferred using the GRANT OWNERSHIP command to a different role by the owning role (or any role with the MANAGE GRANTS privilege).

USAGE

Packages policy

Enables viewing a packages policy. Grants the ability to view the contents of a packages policy in a SHOW or DESCRIBE command and INFORMATION_SCHEMA.CURRENT_PACKAGES_POLICY. Can be granted to a role using the GRANT <privileges> command.

Note that operating on any object in a schema also requires the USAGE privilege on the parent database and schema.

For instructions on creating a custom role with a specified set of privileges, see Creating custom roles.

For general information about roles and privilege grants for performing SQL actions on securable objects, see Overview of Access Control.

Usage notes

  • To post-process the output of this command, you can use the RESULT_SCAN function, which treats the output as a table that can be queried.
