    • While loading queries in the Select Execution Plan(s) dialog box
    Use X views (DBC and QCD) If selected, X views are used to access Data Dictionary and QCD data. X views limit access to those plans owned (Data Dictionary and QCD data captured) by the user currently logged-on.

    Use X views (QCD only) If selected, X views are used to access QCD data. X views limit access to those plans (QCD data only) that are owned (or were captured) by the logged-on user. This option can be used, along with the predefined user categories of the Grant/Revoke Privileges on QCD feature, to control plan access. For more information, see Changing User Rights on the QCD.
