Editing link properties

Database Link Editor provides you with an ability to edit link properties. The detailed description of the properties you can find below.



The field represents the new database link name as it was set on the previous wizard step.


The field displays the owner of the new database link.



Specify SHARED to use a single network connection to create a public database link that can be shared among multiple users.


Connect string

Specify the service name of a remote database. If you specify only the database name, then Oracle Database implicitly appends the database domain to the connect string to create a complete service name. Therefore, if the database domain of the remote database is different from that of the current database, then you must specify the complete service name


Connect to (Password, User name)

The Connect to clause lets you enable a connection to the remote database. Specify CURRENT_USER to create a current user database link. The current user must be a global user with a valid account on the remote database. If the database link is used directly, that is, not from within a stored object, then the current user is the same as the connected user. When executing a stored object (such as a procedure, view, or trigger) that initiates a database link, CURRENT_USER is the username that owns the stored object, and not the username that called the object. For example, if the database link appears inside procedure scott.p (created by scott), and user jane calls procedure scott.p, the current user is scott.


Autentificated (Password, User name)

Specify the User name and Password on the target instance. This clause authenticates the user to the remote server and is required for security. The specified username and password must be a valid username and password on the remote instance. The username and password are used only for authentication. No other operations are performed on behalf of this user.

You must specify this clause when using the Shared clause.

To apply the changes, select the Apply Changes item in the Navigation bar or use Ctrl+F9 or Ctrl+F7 shortcut keys.


It is also possible to modify object properties without opening the object editor: use the Object Properties item of the popup menu of the selected object from the explorer tree.
