Example

Dropping a Profile: Example The following statement drops the profile app_user, which was created in "Creating a Profile: Example". Oracle Database drops the profile app_user and assigns the DEFAULT profile to any users currently assigned the app_user profile:

DROP PROFILE app_user CASCADE;
