Access for New Tables

The Access for New Tables option defines the default role access for database tables. When the new role is created, the default table access is valid for all tables. If you change the Access for New Tables option for the existing role, it will be valid only for new tables that will be created after this change. The Full Access option is set by default, if you want to restrict table access for the role, you can set the Read Only or No Access option.
