Create User Wizard

Create User Wizard guides you through the process of creating a new database user. See How To Create User to learn how to run the wizard.

The basic principles of Create Object Wizards in MaxDB Maestro are covered by the corresponding topic. See below to find the description of wizard steps that are unique to the current object.


Specifying user options


The field contains the editable new user name as it was set on the previous wizard step.



Displays the user owner (The user owner is his creator).By default, only the owner of an object can perform various operations with the object. In order to allow other users to operate it, privileges must be granted. (However, users that have the superuser attribute can always access any object.)


User Mode

The user mode distinguish the authorization that the user will have.

STANDARD - Access to data and database procedures that were defined by other database users and for which the user has been given privileges. Definition of view tables, synonyms and temporary tables

RESOURCE - Definition of data and database procedures. Granting of privileges for these database objects to other database users

DBA (database administrator) - Creation of RESOURCE and STANDARD database users

Definition of database objects. Granting of all or part of privileges for these database objects to other database users


Enable connect

You use the option to define whether a user can open database sessions.



Check the option to prevent the user from opening several different database sessions simultaneously.



Use the field to define the password for the user been creating. The password must be specified when a database session is started.



The timeout value determines the maximum duration of inactivity in a database session. The duration of inactivity is the time interval between ending an SQL statement and sending the next SQL statement. As soon as the timeout value is exceeded, the database system ends the database session with a ROLLBACK. The value is specified in seconds and must be between 30 and 32400.


Cost warning

Use the field to specify the estimated SELECT cost value beyond which the user receives A warning. In this case, the user is asked whether he or she really wants to execute the SQL statement. The Cost limit value must be less than the Cost warning value.


Cost limit

Enter here the estimated SELECT cost value beyond which the SQL statement is not executed.

The Cost limit value must be greater than the Cost warning value.

Specifying user's role membership

The highly secured MaxDB server allows to unit user privileges to roles. A role is a group of privileges that can be granted to database users, user groups, or to other roles. To assign the role's privileges, check the respective Granted boxes.


Note: To create a user you must be a database administrator (DBA user). After the creation you'll become the owner of the created user.
