Prevent users changing the SQL Favorites directory
 
Aslam from Bahrain asked the following question:
 
Question:
Our DBA has raised concerns pointing out the following loopholes giving the freedom for users to exploit the database. Therefore we need to fix them before we could deploy SQL*XL company wide. I prefer to get the security tool kit CD to prevent the users from performing the following tasks:
  • Disable 'SQL', 'Transaction' options
  • Prevent the option to modify the 'Favourite' Directory (So that they will not have the freedom to select any other SQL's)
  • Prevent users from seeing or modifying the SQL scripts. It should run as soon they select from the Favourite, without the Dialog box to change.

 
Answer:
With the security toolkit you can prevent the users from doing this. The option to prevent the changing of the SQL Favorites directory was not yet built into the program. Thank you for recommending this. I have incorporated this into SQL*XL and also into the security toolkit. It will be available in SQL*XL 4.1.4.
