Unable to execute a query without super admin


I have recently migrated my database to DO managed Database however I bumped into an issue that is very critical for me to resolve and would be happy if someone would explain how to overcome this issue

I am currently trying to execute the following query


but unsuccessfully I receive the error that I need super admin to perform this action

I can google all day long and maybe find the solution myself but I rather if someone has an idea how to do this



Hello @omercohen are you logged in as the default user?

Thanks for the fast reply yes I have indeed logged in as the default user called doadmin

here is the error I get:

Access denied; you need (at least one of) the SUPER or SYSTEM_VARIABLES_ADMIN privilege(s) for this operation

I don’t think that changing globals would be possible for the managed databases, basically if they allow you to do that they are risking of users breaking their managed MySQL clusters. For some parameters you changing the values for session only works pretty well.
