Public privileges are the privileges that all users have on a database asset. Each resource has a single property, Public Permissions, that determines the public privileges for the asset protected by the resource. The possible values are, depending on the resource, READ, WRITE, and USE. For example, if the public permissions on %DB_EmployeeInfo include READ, then all users can read the EmployeeInfo database.
By default several databases installed with InterSystems IRIS support various public privileges:
