SAP HANA XSA 2.0 SPS 03: ​Error: "DROP" after update


has something changed within the .hdbroles definition or requirements in the new SPS 03?

I've the issue that I get in different projects an error for invalid privileges, but we are using them since a while.

I removed "DROP", but after that came the next error for "INDEX".

Error: "DROP": invalid privilege for the "AMP.db::XXX.XXX" object of type "TABLE" [8254522]


		"object_privileges": [{
				"name": "AMP.db::XXX.XXX",
				"type": "TABLE",

  • Hi Dirk,

    Did you find the solution for this? When we upgraded to SP3, we see that we cannot list "DROP" and "TRIGGER" in the privileges. We also see that we run into the build issues which seem to be stemming from the runtime objects not being dropped before the new design time changes can be activated.

    This is within a container so really no user but the container object owner should have such DDL features such as DROP. So it seems to me that such restrictions make sense.

    • It seems that none of the objects can be dropped from within a container. So is it the only way to use the direct db connection option with enough privileges to drop objects?

      Sometimes you need to create some objects for testing purposes but you can't drop them later.

    Because we can't assign DROP to a role., the runtime objects like triggers created while realtime replication cant be dropped incase we run into issues like above

    Any suggestions?
