In Oracle PL/SQL, the term PRIVILEGE refers to the right or ability to perform operations in a database, such as executing an SQL statement or accessing another user's object.
An example privilege is the right to DROP a table or other object in the database.
Another example would be the DELETE privilege, which gives a user the right to remove rows from a table.
Privileges may be given to a user with the GRANT command, or assigned implicitly by the ROLE command.
System privileges are privileges that do not relate to a specific schema or object.
