Managed Postgres pool Access from DO App - Permission Denied

I have attached my managed database to my digital ocean app however when connecting via a pool I always get a permission denied error on all of the tables in the database.

ERROR: permission denied for table Bot

No matter what I do I am unable to resolve this problem. If I connect with doadmin I have no problems outside of a pool, buy pooling is a problem. Even from my local machine with the IP added I still have issues with the pools.

What am I missing, do we need to manually alter permissions for new users created?

In case that anyone else comes across this in the future, here is a link to the documentation on how to do that:



Resolved by granting permissions.
