The default user provided when the database is created doadmin has no privileges. When trying to run this command:

GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON database_name.* TO 'new_user'@'%';

I get this error:

ERROR 1227 (42000): Access denied; you need (at least one of) the SUPER privilege(s) for this operation

and I get a similar error when trying to give doadmin user privileges.

I Assume you are using MySQL managed database.
Are you running GRANT ALL with ‘doadmin’ user? If not suggest you execute using 'doadmin’ user account.

The Below documentation can guide you:

I hope this helps!

  • I am using a database cluster.
    Are you running GRANT ALL with ‘doadmin’ user? Yes

    The problem is that doadmin user does not have the permissions to do what the documentation says
