Oracle Roles

On Oracle, "roles" are supported. That is to say, each user group is mapped to an Oracle role.

For this to work, the owner of the application must be granted the CREATE ROLE privilege.

On Oracle, the roles created when granting a user group for an application, have <owner>_A_<application name> as their name. The owner is added in order to be able to create, for example, two Definer repositories with two different owners on one Oracle database instance, and so that the role names do not interfere with each other.
