Description

CREATE ROLE|USER… PROFILE adds a new role with an associated profile to an EDB Postgres Advanced Server database cluster.

Roles created with the CREATE USER command are (by default) login roles. Roles created with the CREATE ROLE command are (by default) not login roles. To create a login account with the CREATE ROLE command, you must include the LOGIN keyword.

Only a database superuser can use the CREATE USER|ROLE clauses that enforce profile management; these clauses enforce the following behaviors:

  • Include the PROFILE clause and a profile_name to associate a pre-defined profile with a role, or to change which pre-defined profile is associated with a user.

  • Include the ACCOUNT clause and the LOCK or UNLOCK keyword to specify that the user account should be placed in a locked or unlocked state.

  • Include the LOCK TIME 'timestamp' clause and a date/time value to lock the role at the specified time, and unlock the role at the time indicated by the PASSWORD_LOCK_TIME parameter of the profile assigned to this role. If LOCK TIME is used with the ACCOUNT LOCK clause, the role can only be unlocked by a database superuser with the ACCOUNT UNLOCK clause.

  • Include the PASSWORD EXPIRE clause with the optional AT 'timestamp' keywords to specify a date/time when the password associated with the role will expire. If you omit the AT 'timestamp' keywords, the password will expire immediately.

Each login role may only have one profile. To discover the profile that is currently associated with a login role, query the profile column of the DBA_USERS view.

Parameters

name

The name of the role.

profile_name

The name of the profile associated with the role.

timestamp

The date and time at which the clause will be enforced. When specifying a value for timestamp, enclose the value in single-quotes.

Examples

The following example uses CREATE USER to create a login role named john who is associated with the acctg_profile profile:

CREATE USER john PROFILE acctg_profile IDENTIFIED BY “1safepwd”;

john can log in to the server, using the password 1safepwd.

The following example uses CREATE ROLE to create a login role named john who is associated with the acctg_profile profile:

CREATE ROLE john PROFILE acctg_profile LOGIN PASSWORD “1safepwd”;

john can log in to the server, using the password 1safepwd.
