Granting permissions on procedures

The DBA or the owner of the procedure may grant permission to execute stored procedures. The EXECUTE permission is the only permission that may be granted on a procedure.

The method for granting permissions to execute a procedure is similar to that for granting permissions on tables and views. However, the WITH GRANT OPTION clause of the GRANT statement does not apply to the granting of permissions on procedures.

You can use either Sybase Central or Interactive SQL to set permissions.

To grant permissions on procedures (Sybase Central)
  1. Connect to the database.

  2. Open the Procedures & Functions folder for that database.

  3. Select a procedure and then choose File > Properties.

  4. On the Permissions tab of the Procedure property sheet, configure the permissions for the procedure:


You can also assign permissions from the User or Group property sheet. To assign permissions to many users and groups at once, use the Procedure property sheet. To assign permissions to many procedures at once, use the User or Group property sheet.

To grant permissions on procedures (SQL)
  1. Connect to the database as the DBA or as the owner of the procedure.

  2. Execute a GRANT EXECUTE ON statement.

  3. Example

    You can grant M_Haneef permission to execute a procedure named my_procedure, as follows:

    1. Connect to the database as the DBA or as owner of my_procedure procedure.

    2. Execute the SQL statement:

      ON my_procedure
      TO M_Haneef;
    Execution permissions of procedures

    Procedures execute with the permissions of their owner. Any procedure that updates information in a table will execute successfully only if the owner of the procedure has UPDATE permissions on the table.

    As long as the procedure owner has the proper permissions, the procedure executes successfully when called by any user assigned permission to execute it, whether or not they have permissions on the underlying table. You can use procedures to allow users to perform well-defined activities on a table, without having any general permissions on the table.
