As a DB2 LUW Database Administrator you are probably reluctant to or prohibited from granting your users* these permissions because doing so gives them permission to other DB2 administrations tasks like stopping the database. If your users are not allowed to do these tasks then who is? Most likely, you, as the DBA will perform these and other administrative functions for your users. Would you like a way to eliminate these tasks from your daily to-do list? This presentation will discuss how to externalize specific administrative tasks with Stored Procedures, Federated procedures, Administrative SQL routines, and views.
