I granted execution any procedure to public to test an application. When the test is done, I would like to revoke the grant. Would you show me how to do that? If I do revoke execute any procedure from public, it will create all kinds of problems.
REVOKE EXECUTE ANY PROCEDURE FROM PUBLIC ;First of all, you really shouldn't do that under any circumstance (i.e. grant execute any procedure) if you really want to properly test. Your production application won't use that level of security so your tests shouldn't either.
It shouldn't cause any problems in particular. You granted a privilege and now you're taking it away.
