Use the Synonym Editor to view or create synonyms.

About synonym Objects

A synonym is an alternate name for a table or view. A synonym can be private (for use only by its creator) or public (for use by any user). Primarily, synonyms enable multiple users to reference an object without adding the schema as a prefix to the object. They can also allow different applications to reference the same object using different names.

You can make synonyms for the following database objects:

  • tables
  • views
  • other synonyms
  • functions
  • packages
  • procedures
  • sequences
  • database links

The characteristics and usage of this database object are described in Oracle documentation.
