Usage Notes

The REVOKE command only affects future DBW sessions. You must stop the DBW session and then restart it for the updated permissions to take effect.

If interactive permission is revoked, then it is removed from the GRANT list if it exists there. If interactive permission has been granted, it is added to the GRANT list. To grant interactive permissions, see GRANT.
