Why Does the Root User Not Have the Super Permissions?
Most relational database cloud service platforms do not provide super permissions for the root user. The super permissions allow users to execute many management commands, such as reset master, set global, kill, and reset slave. These operations may cause primary/standby replication errors. This is a major difference between public cloud databases and on-premises MySQL databases. To ensure stable running of DB instances, RDS does not provide the super permission for the root user.
If you need to perform actions that normally require super permissions, RDS provides alternative methods.
- You can modify parameter values only on the RDS console. You cannot run the following command on an RDS DB database to modify parameter values.
If the script contains the set global command, delete the set global command and modify parameter values through the RDS console.
- An error is reported after you run the following command because the root user does not have super permissions. You can delete definer='root' from the command to solve the problem.
create definer='root'@'%' trigger(procedure)...
You can import data using mysqldump. For operation details, see Migrating Data to RDS for MySQL Using mysqldump.
- You can create PostgreSQL plugins by referring to Managing a Plugin.
