SaveToDB Framework Roles

You have to grant permissions on SaveToDB Framework objects to allow applications to read the configuration.

You can do this by adding users to built-in SaveToDB Framework roles:

  • xls_users
  • xls_formats
  • xls_developers

The xls_users role has permissions to read the configuration.

The xls_formats role has permissions to save table formats to the xls.formats table.

The xls_developers role has permissions to read and write the configuration.

Managing User Roles

You can use the context menu of the xls.users view or SQL commands show below to add or remove roles.

SQL Server | MySQL | PostgreSQL | Oracle | DB2 | NuoDB | Snowflake

Managing User Roles with Microsoft SQL Server

ALTER ROLE xls_users ADD MEMBER sample02_user3;
ALTER ROLE xls_formats ADD MEMBER sample02_user3;
ALTER ROLE xls_developers ADD MEMBER sample02_user3;

ALTER ROLE xls_users DROP MEMBER sample02_user3;
ALTER ROLE xls_formats DROP MEMBER sample02_user3;
ALTER ROLE xls_developers DROP MEMBER sample02_user3;

Managing User Roles with MySQL

To be compatible with MySQL 5.7, SaveToDB Framework for MySQL does not use roles.

You can use the following procedures to grant or revoke permission on framework objects.

CALL xls.xl_actions_add_to_xls_users('localhost', 'sample02_user3');
CALL xls.xl_actions_add_to_xls_formats('localhost', 'sample02_user3');
CALL xls.xl_actions_add_to_xls_developers('localhost', 'sample02_user3');

CALL xls.xl_actions_remove_from_xls_users('localhost', 'sample02_user3');
CALL xls.xl_actions_remove_from_xls_formats('localhost', 'sample02_user3');
CALL xls.xl_actions_remove_from_xls_developers('localhost', 'sample02_user3');
