Access control requirements

A role used to execute this SQL command must have the following privileges at a minimum:

Object

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).

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

  • A packages policy cannot be dropped successfully if it is currently attached to an account. Before executing a DROP statement, to UNSET the packages policy from the account, run ALTER ACCOUNT UNSET PACKAGES POLICY.
