Question

Creating a user and granting privileges to the user

Hi All,

This is how the use case goes.

I have to create a new database, a new user and grant privileges to the newly created user for the db which i just created.

The problem is that i am not able to grant the privileges as it says access denied to user.

My first problem:- How do i grant a root access to a user which i created from the dashboard.

If not root user:- How do i get the root credentials to make a new user.

This is not possible with the Managed databases, if they allow you to have root access to the managed cluster then the cluster would no longer be managed as a user can make all kinds of changes and break the cluster.
