Usage Notes

  • Latency for the view may be up to 120 minutes (2 hours).

  • The view only displays objects for which the current role for the session has been granted access privileges.

  • The view does not recognize the MANAGE GRANTS privilege and consequently may show less information compared to a SHOW command executed by a user who holds the MANAGE GRANTS privilege.
