Subject Re: [firebird-support] Execute linux command from stored proc or trigger
Author Alexandre Benson Smith
Hi !

AFAIK it is not possible, and I think it will be a security risk to allow
FB to run server commands.

I think you know that, and have a good reason to want to create a new user
when a user is added to your database table. You do not need a system user
to let your user access the database, I think the database server should
have only 2 users "root" and "firebird".
