Building a New Column to List the Guardium Group Membership of DB Users

by John Haldeman, Enterprise Architect

Sometimes it's useful to know whether some of the data shown in a report is in a Guardium group without having to look up the group data elsewhere or modifying your conditions.

Let's take an example. Say you have three classifications of user:

  1. DBAs or other highly privileged users
  2. Non-DBA, direct-access users: people that connect directly with personal accounts
  3. Service accounts: users that belong to application or batch processes

You want a report showing all connections but a column indicating that the user is in one of those groups or unclassified.
