By default, database users have the privilege to modify certain parameters in their user definition. When users submit a self-referent MODIFY USER request to change any of the following parameters, the system does not check any privileges:

  • AFTER JOURNAL
  • BEFORE JOURNAL
  • COLLATION
  • DEFAULT DATABASE
  • DEFAULT JOURNAL TABLE
  • PASSWORD
  • STARTUP

Because the system does not do a privilege check on such requests, it performs no logging.
