  now_GR.addQuery("name", table);
  now_GR.addQuery("operation", "read");
  now_GR.query();
  var encQuery = now_GR.getEncodedQuery();
  if (now_GR.next()) {
    // existing acl found so use it
    createAclRole(now_GR.sys_id.toString(), role);
   return;
  } else {
    now_GR.initialize();
    now_GR.applyEncodedQuery(encQuery);
    var acl = now_GR.insert();
    gs.print("   Added read access control on " + table);
    createAclRole(acl, role);
  }
