Directory users can create users and databases if permitted by the privileges granted to the users or roles to which they are mapped, however, ownership of these objects follows different rules than those that apply to permanent users.

  • Directory users do not have database identifiers and therefore cannot be owners or creators of database objects.
  • The system registers the users and databases created by directory users in DBC.Dbase, with the mapped permanent database user listed as the object owner and creator.
  • Objects created by directory users who are not mapped to permanent database users are owned by the database that contains the created object.
