    Unanswered: syscat table privileges

    I have an user who needs to access db2 catalog tables (SYSCAT schema..) for some reason.

    I don't intend to give more that what is needed.. what would be my list of options here.

    Can we grant select privileges on SYSCAT tables at an individual user level. I remember reading it somewhere that we cannot issue grant select/insert/...priviliges on SYSCAT tables..

    The only option that I can think of is EXPLAIN or DATAACCESS privilege on db, that would allow him to access syscat tables. I prefer EXPLAIN over DATAACCESS because it is more restrictive..

    Any thoughts or experiences will be greatly appreciated..

    was db created with restrict
    otherwise grant select is public for catalog
    yes you can grant select ..
    check if grant connect is public or also grant connect first
