Off topic: IMP EXP as DBA


#2

Morning Ed,

For starters on your 11gR2 DB your test user should have the
role IMP_FULL_DATABASE.
Using the least privilege methodology, and because Jerry only need to
export a table from the TEST user, then IMP_FULL_DATABASE is probably
not required. It would be, if Jerry needed to take FULL exports using
his TEST user of course.

Exporting and importing are DBA
activities since they need to access DBA objects like sys
DBMS_ packages and tables.
True, for a FULL export, but for a single user or table or two, I
disagree.

So you don’t and shouldn’t have
to give someone the DBA role to do imports just the correct role.
Fully agree. IN fact, I’d go so far as to state that you shouldn’t give
the DBA role to any user that the database doesn’t do automagically. So,
SYS and SYSTEM and no-one else. (Unless Oracle introduces another SYSTEM
type user!)

Also I would look at switching over to using Data Pump since
at some point in maybe Oracle 12x imp and exp will
disappear. In that case you will need the roles
DATAPUMP_EXP_FULL_DATABASE and DATAPUMP_IMP_FULL_DATABASE.
I’m sure Bert said it was already deprecated and imp was already gone.
Exp will remain for a couple of versions to allow old exp files to be
imported.

Cheers,
Norm. [TeamT]
