You must have the policy-based database permission feature to perform the following actions.

Policy-based database permissions allow administrators the ability to set database permissions at the policy level. Assigning permissions per policy accomplishes the following:

  • More granular database permission assignment 
  • Administration efficiencies for database permissions and users

All permission levels are assigned at the account level.

After the policy-based database permission feature is enabled, database access at the user level is no longer available. You cannot revert to the previous database access (legacy).
