Passing role/group to called ABF QBF/RBF frames

Passing role/group to called ABF QBF/RBF frames

Post by Lucky Leavel » Sun, 21 Jan 1996 04:00:00



This originally began as a question on the SUID bit under OI 1.1.  I've
resigned myself to the fact that OI doesn't honor thw SUID bit in the way
6.x did.  I've tried using roles but cannot get past the role password
(posted separately) so now I'm trying groups. Now I find I cannot pass
the ABF/4GL application group (from the command line) to called QBF/RBF
frames or at least I cannot find it.  

I guess I could use the CALL SYSTEM statement and generate a command line
call to qbf but that seems a bit kludgy.  (I should point out that I do
not have the Vision/ABF/4GL docs for OI, just 6.4.).

Am I missing something?  Is my caffeine level too low?

TIA,
Lucky

1. Too many permits - Was: Passing role/group to called ABF QBF/RBF frames

Seems that Bug 8011 (cf Advisor Document us-9527,pr) is alive and well in
OI 1.1/04!  I tried dropping all permits on the recalcitrant (sic) tables
and the granting select to public and inser,t, update and delete to group
and it worked!  Apparently there is an undocumented limit on just how
many permits will "take".  

FWIW, I tried every comination of REVOKE I could think of and it either
lied and said the permits were gone (they weren't) or gave me an error
stating  that user ingres ($ingres, root and every other user I could
think of) didn't own the permit.  DROP PERMIT ON <tablename> ALL worked
just fine, thank you.

FWIW: OpenIngres 1.1/04 on SCO OpenServer Release 5 (sos.us5/02)

Thank you,
