End users can connect to an SQL data service through a JDBC or ODBC client tool. After connecting, users can run SQL queries against virtual tables in an SQL data service, or users can run a virtual stored procedure in an SQL data service. Permissions control the level of access that a user has to an SQL data service.
You can assign permissions to users and groups on the following SQL data service objects:
SQL data service
Virtual stored procedure
When you assign permissions on an SQL data service object, the user or group inherits the same permissions on all objects that belong to the SQL data service object. For example, you assign a user select permission on an SQL data service. The user inherits select permission on all virtual tables in the SQL data service.
You can deny permissions to users and groups on some SQL data service objects. When you deny permissions, you configure exceptions to the permissions that users and groups might already have. For example, you cannot assign permissions to a column in a virtual table, but you can deny a user from running an SQL SELECT statement that includes the column.
