The SQL*Plus utility is the standard way of offering interactive access to an Oracle database.
The product profile can be used to limit the way that your user community can use SQL*Plus.
Now that you have completed this module, you should be able to:
Describe how the product profile works
Limit access to a command
Limit access for a role
Use wildcards in defining product profiles
Remove a restriction imposed by a product profile
Report on product profiles.
With product profiles, it is much easier to give some or all of your users access to SQL*Plus without having to unleash its full power into their untrained hands. In the next module, you will learn how triggers can extend the functionality of your Oracle database.
