I'm trying to construct an Oracle 11g logon trigger that restricts access for a specific user to a known list of applications. For example, user
SCOTT can only connect with
I believe I have the correct trigger and logic, but the problem I'm having is that the
RAISE_APPLICATION_ERROR(); doesn't kill the session.
The trigger is enabled, and I've tried granting the
ADMINISTER DATABASE TRIGGER privilege, but I'm still missing something.
Based on the this example, here's the trigger I have so far (owned by the same user):
CREATE OR REPLACE TRIGGER global_logon_trg AFTER logon ON DATABASE DECLARE p_session_user varchar2(64); p_module varchar2(64); BEGIN SELECT UPPER(SYS_CONTEXT('USERENV', 'SESSION_USER')) INTO p_session_user FROM DUAL; SELECT UPPER(SYS_CONTEXT('USERENV', 'MODULE')) INTO p_module FROM DUAL; DBMS_SESSION.SET_IDENTIFIER(p_session_user || '-' || p_module); IF ((p_session_user = 'SCOTT') AND (p_module IN ('MYAPP.EXE'))) THEN DBMS_SESSION.SET_IDENTIFIER('about to raise app_error..'); RAISE_APPLICATION_ERROR(-20003,'You are not allowed to connect to the database'); END IF; END; /
But logging in as
SCOTT with SQL*Plus still works. And if I then query
v$session, with the following query:
select username, client_identifier from v$session where username not in ('SYSMAN', 'DBSNMP');
I get the following result..
USERNAME CLIENT_IDENTIFIER ------------------ ----------------------------------- SCOTT about to raise app_error..
What am I missing? Is this a privileges thing, a trigger code thing, or an Oracle bug thing? Or is there a better way to do what I'm trying to do?! (I have full control over the Database and the Server it sits on, if that makes it any easier!)
