Models and Model Objects > Physical Data Model > Advanced Database Design > Permissions

In Toad Data Modeler, you can assign permissions to the following objects:

  • Entity
  • Attribute
  • User Data Type
  • View
  • Procedure
  • Schema
  • Users and User Groups.

This list is dependent on your current database platform and version. For example, some databases do not support assigning permissions to Users.

For every object, different permissions can be set (SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE etc.), depending on current database platform.

Options for permissions are described in the following example. Permissions for attributes, user data types etc. are set in the Properties dialog of particular object | Permissions tab (e.g. Attribute Properties | Properties).


Add Permissions

To be able to add a Permission, it's necessary to define a User or User Group. In case you forget, Toad Data Modeler allows you to define them directly from any Permissions tab of a particular object - click Users or User Groups.

To add a permission for entity

In the Entity Properties form, select the Permissions tab and click Add.

Example: Creating permission for user SCOTT in Entity Properties form:

If you want to change the permission User or User Group, select the permission User (User Group) column, press F2 and choose from the list.

TIP: This kind of editing properties is usable anywhere in Toad Data Modeler. For more information, see Inplace Editor.

Permissions Tab


User (User Group)
