    Viewing Tables/Schema

      What rights does a user need in order to be able to expand the "Tables" node in the left hand column and actually see tables?
      Currently, my user can connect, but the "tables" node will not expand and display the tables.

          Hi Ken,

          You don't give details about the environment/versions, but here are a couple of recurring scenarios on this forum:
          1. Bug 12382135 - NO TABLES SHOWN IN NAV

          Both are discussed in the following thread:
          Re: 30EA4 - Unable to expand tables node

          As noted there, (1) was fixed long ago. (2) was only fixed recently and will be in the next release. Perhaps one of these applies to your user's situation?

            I left the version of SqlDeveloper out as this situation seems to occur with the three most recent version - I have tried them all.
            Target DB's: Oracle 11g R2
            User Grants: connect, resource, create_sesson, select_any_dictionary

            SqlDeveloper version currently being used.

              So if neither of those bugs apply to your user's scenario (and Bug 13953985 occurs with either of SELECT_CATALOG_ROLE or SELECT ANY DICTIONARY privilege), and you are certain it is not some unusual security issue, then the only other advice I can give would be here:
              Re: [SQL Developer 3.0.04] Cannot Drill Down

              • 4. Re: Viewing Tables/Schema
                Yes. It seems that if the user selects the schema browser he can then see the tables. However, nothing is visible in the left column.
                • 5. Re: Viewing Tables/Schema
                  Gary Graham-Oracle
                  We may be talking past each other a bit here. I don't really get what you mean. Is it something like:

                  1. On
                  2. Connect to a user having select any dictionary privilege
                  3. Open Schema Browser
                  4. My user can see ... what?

                  Tables in the drop-down list for that user? Another user? What do you mean by left column? The column tab in the object viewer pane? The data tab in the object viewer pane? Give as precise a description as possible.
