Roles are sets of user privileges you associate with access to objects within a database. Roles streamline the process of granting permissions. You can use roles to grant sets of permissions and privileges to users and groups. Roles can help you comply with Sarbanes Oxley regulations by limiting which users can have access to what privileges, for example a Human Resources Role versus an Accounting Role.

To create a new role using a wizard:

  1. Open an object creation wizard for a role. For details, see Opening an Object Wizard.
  2. Use the following topics as a guide to setting properties and performing tasks as you pass through the wizard panels:
  3. Finally, use the Execute button to create the object.

After creating a role, you can use the Roles Editor to assign the role to logons or other roles. For details, see Roles Editor (Sybase ASE).

For information on activating and deactivating roles for the current login in the current session, see Role Activation.
