GRANT (Library)

Grants usage privileges on one or more libraries to users and roles.

For example, when working with the Connector Framework Service, you might need to grant a user usage privileges to a library to be able to set UDSession parameters. For more information see Implementing CFS.

   ON LIBRARY [[database.]schema.]library[,…] 
   TO grantee[,…]
