Creating script in Schema Browser of user

While connected as sys to a Oracle database and using the schema browser under Toad for ORacle12.6.0.53 I tried to generate a script of a user and nothing happens. If you highlight a user in the schema browser and look at the script tab on the right nothing appears. This all worked in Oracle for Toad 12.1.1… I also found this stopped functioning in 12.5…

Are the scripts still being created for other object types? If so, maybe there is some SQL error happening in the background. Turn on spool SQL to see, and paste the output here.

If other object types are broken too, try shutting down Toad and then look in your User Files folder for a file called ToadActions.dat. Rename it to ToadActions_backup or something, and then try the script again in Toad. I haven’t seen it much in recent versions, but in older versions, if this file got corrupt, it would prevent certain things in Toad from working.

order by pp.owner, pp.table_name, pp.grantee, pp.grantable, pp.privilege


Other objects in schema browser seem to work ok. Only users seem to be failing.

Oh, I see what’s going on. You have your script tab set to show you the privileges on that user’s object to other users.

To switch it to show the script to create the user, click the first toolbar button on the script tab. Then, in the dialog that appears, click on the “Users” tab, and uncheck “Grants on the user’s objects to other users/roles”.

The “create user” and “grants on user’s objects” scripts don’t make sense to show together because if the script creates the user, then the user won’t have any objects to grant yet.

Hi John,

Thanks . this worked fine perfect.
