To ensure that role privileges are available to users at log on, you must define a default role for each user that is a member of one or more roles. If you do not specify a default role, the user must employ the SET ROLE statement to select the operant role. For example:

SET ROLE  role_name;

or

SET ROLE ALL;

You can also use the SET ROLE statement to change from one role to another role within a session.

To ensure that the user is operating with the appropriate role, specify the default role for a user as follows
  1. From the client program of your choice, log on to Vantage as user DBADMIN.
  2. Modify the user, for example:
    MODIFY USER "GenUser1" AS
    STARTUP = ''
    DEFAULT DATABASE = "Personnel_Views"
    NO BEFORE JOURNAL
    NO AFTER JOURNAL
    COLLATION = HOST
    DEFAULT CHARACTER SET LATIN
    DATEFORM=INTEGERDATE
    TIME ZONE=NULL
    DEFAULT ROLE="Role_GenUser_2";
