      Deviation from standard, Security, Seen in production



      in some cases there seem to be issues with SQLAuthorisation in conjunction with database VIEWS.
      Please see attached files as repro (script.txt has only the SQL I executed, output is the output resulting when running the script).
      I would think identical results should be returned in all cases and independent on how the view has been defined, but this to my surprise not being the case:

      1) Trying to select from view appl."VW_MyTasks" - which is a simple view defined on just one table - leads to expected results, i.e. "my" tasks are being returned.
      2) Trying to select from view appl."VW_MyPriorityTasks - which is a view defined on two joined tables without using an inner join clause - leads to expected results, i.e. "my" priority tasks are being returned.
      3) Trying to select from view appl."VW2_MyPriorityTasks - which is the same view but now the two tables joined using an inner join clause - leads to an error and no tasks returned (when the same results as in 2) above were expected).
      4) Trying to select from view appl."VW3_MyPriorityTasks" - which is a view defined using a subselect - also unexpectedly leads to an error.

      Note: While I could rewrite each inner join clause with changing the syntax like in 2) above, this provides a simple work-around for such cases. May be there is a work-around for subselects also (not sure if every subselect could be rewritten to a join?). However when depending on using EXISTS constructs in the query there unfortunately is no way (I would know of) to get around this problem. Unfortuanetly a view that makes use of EXISTS is also one I would need to define in my data base...
