If you want to create a special user for use with Ottomatik and are wondering what permissions are needed here they are.

Before you start, please note:

  • Please consider changing "YOUR_PASSWORD_HERE" string with your desired password
  • Note that the "dump"@"%" user/host is just an example, you can set that to whatever fits your needs.

Let’s start by making a new user within the MySQL shell:

CREATE USER 'dump'@'%' IDENTIFIED BY 'YOUR_PASSWORD_HERE';

MySQL backup permissions:

GRANT SELECT, USAGE, LOCK TABLES, SHOW VIEW, RELOAD, EVENT, TRIGGER, REPLICATION SLAVE, REPLICATION CLIENT ON *.* TO 'dump'@'%'

FLUSH PRIVILEGES;

Restore permissions (super required to disable/enable binary logging during restore):

GRANT SUPER, DROP, CREATE, UPDATE, ALTER, INDEX, CREATE ROUTINE, ALTER ROUTINE, INSERT, EXECUTE ON *.* TO 'dump'@'%';

FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
