You can use this view to query the characteristics of the databases you own and which you have privileges on.

For information about the possible values for the JournalFlag column, see "JournalFlag Column."

Corresponding Tables

The X view references these additional tables:

  • DBC.AccessRights
  • DBC.Owners
  • DBC.RoleGrants
  • DBC.Roles


The indicators in the JournalFlag column depend on:
  • The FALLBACK and JOURNAL settings for the database, which serve as the default for all tables created in that database
  • Any FALLBACK and JOURNAL settings defined in the CREATE TABLE and ALTER TABLE statements

The settings defined for an individual table override the database defaults on platforms where NO FALLBACK is allowed. For all the account names associated with a database or user, use the AccountInfo[X] system view.
