User permissions

In order to grant rudol the necessary permissions to fetch your database metadata we recommend you to create a new MySQL user with access restricted only to the information_schema database.

Here is a sample code to create a new user for rudol with minimal permissions for metadata scan:

CREATE USER 'rudol_user'@'52.6.101.83' IDENTIFIED BY 'super-secret-password';

GRANT SELECT ON information_schema.`COLUMNS` TO 'rudol_user'@'52.6.101.83';
GRANT SELECT ON information_schema.`TABLES` TO 'rudol_user'@'52.6.101.83';
info

If you want to use Observability features these permissions won't be enough: you'll have to grant SELECT to each table you'd like to run tests for
