The GRANT.KEY command grants access to an encryption key to one or more users or user groups. The user will be asked to enter the master key unless it has already been entered during this session.

 

No error occurs if the user or group specified already has access to the key.

The above command grants access to the encryption key named CARDNO for users jsmith and bjones.
