Lightup needs a user account that can query data and metadata for all tables you want to monitor. You might already have a user set up that will work, or you might need to create one. Grant the user sufficient privileges using security roles.
You can run the following DDL to set up a role and the lightup user account, with the following adjustments:
- You can use whatever role name you want (readaccess is just an example).
- GRANT CONNECT on all databases you want Lightup to see (cdb is just an example).
- GRANT USAGE ON and GRANT SELECT ON ALL TABLES IN SCHEMA for all schemas you want Lightup to see (testdata is just an example).
- Substitute your own password for **redacted**.
CREATE ROLE readaccess; GRANT CONNECT ON DATABASE cdb TO readaccess; GRANT USAGE ON SCHEMA testdata TO readaccess; GRANT SELECT ON ALL TABLES IN SCHEMA testdata TO readaccess; CREATE USER lightup WITH LOGIN BYPASSRLS ENCRYPTED PASSWORD '**redacted**'; GRANT ROLE readaccess TO lightup;
- Host Name - The hostname for the datasource (check the browser address bar; you want the string between // and /). Example:
- Database Name - The name of the database you're connecting to. Each datasource can only connect to one database. If you need to connect to more than one, you'll need to create a datasource for each.
- Username - Enter lightup.
- Password - The username account's password.
You can adjust how often scans run for a datasource.
- In section 3 - Advanced, select a value for Schema scan frequency: Hourly, Daily, or Weekly.
MySQL datasources support the Query History, Scheduling, Enable data storage, and Maximum backfill duration, and Maximum distinct values settings. For steps, see Set query governance settings for a datasource.
