Question

trying to schedule new job with pg_cron but permission denied

Hi there, I’m using pg_cron extension with managed Postgres sql database, and when I try to schedule job with standard pg_cron command, it gives me “permission denied” error. I’m connecting to the database with a external database manager (DBeaver), using the standard username “doadmin”.

Can you please help? Thank you

Hello,

Did you run the following GRANT statement for the doadmin user:

GRANT USAGE ON SCHEMA cron TO doadmin;

Best,
