Changes in SQL*Plus Release 18c, Version 18.3
The following are changes in the SQL*Plus User's Guide and Reference for SQL*Plus Release 18c, Version 18.3.
The following feature is deprecated in this release:
Starting in Oracle Database 18c, the SQL*Plus table
PRODUCT_USER_PROFILE(PUP) table is deprecated.
The only use for the
PRODUCT_USER_PROFILE(PUP) table is to provide a mechanism to control product-level security for SQL*Plus. Starting with Oracle Database 18c, this mechanism is no longer relevant. This SQL*Plus product-level security feature will be unavailable in Oracle Database 19c. Oracle recommends that you protect data by using Oracle Database settings, so that you ensure consistent security across all client applications.
