How to manage user privileges in PostgreSQL cluster with multiple databases/users?
I want to use a single Managed PostgreSQL cluster from DO to host multiple applications (since they’re all small, there’s no need to have a unique cluster per app).
From what I’ve gathered, permissions and user privileges on Postgres are quite complicated.
For instance, supposed I have a user named
production_user and a database called
mydatabase_prod. I want only this user to have permission to access and modify this database.
Is this the minimum that should be done or am I missing something obvious?
ALTER DATABASE mydabase_prod OWNER TO production_user; REVOKE ALL ON DATABASE mydabase_prod FROM PUBLIC; GRANT CONNECT ON DATABASE mydabase_prod TO production_user; GRANT ALL ON DATABASE mydabase_prod TO production_user;
Thanks in advance!
