Database users


Until version 11.70.xC2, Informix database users must be created at the operating system level and must be members of the 'informix' group.

Starting with 11.70.xC2, Informix supports database-only users with the CREATE USER instruction, as in most other db servers.

Any database user must have sufficient privileges to connect and use resources of the database; user rights are defined with the GRANT command.


The system administrator (DBA) must declare the application users in the database with the GRANT statement.

You may also need to define groups in order to make tables visible to other users.


See SAP® ASE documentation for more details on database logins and users.
