Grants Attributes

id String

Unique identifier of the Dremio catalog object.

Example: 7f1c4660-cd7b-40d0-97d1-b8a6f431cbda


availablePrivileges Array of String

List of available privileges on the catalog object.

Example: ["ALTER","DELETE","INSERT","MANAGE_GRANTS","SELECT","TRUNCATE","UPDATE"]


grants Array of Object

Information about the privileges and grantees for the catalog object. If the grants array is empty, there are no explicit grants for the object.

note

An empty grants array does not mean no users have access to the object at all. For example, admin users implicitly have all privileges on all catalog objects, owners implicitly have all privileges on everything they own, and children objects inherit the grants for their parent objects.

Example: [{"privileges": ["ALTER","SELECT","MANAGE_GRANTS"],"granteeType": "USER","id": "27937a63-e7e5-4478-8d3c-4ad3f20d43c0","name": "jeansmith","firstName": "Jean","lastName": "Smith","email": "jean_smith@example.com"},{"privileges": ["ALTER","SELECT"],"granteeType": "ROLE","id": "0f2d94e0-bb5e-4c03-8c6f-62d379d10889","name": "examplerole"}]
