User created according to the info found at https://mariadb.com/kb/en/library/mariabackup-overview/#authentication-and-privileges
When running mariabackup the following error message appears:
[..] Obtaining rocksdb checkpoint lock.
Error: failed to execute query SET GLOBAL rocksdb_create_checkpoint='/data/rocksdb/mariabackup-checkpoint': Access denied; you need (at least one of) the SUPER privilege(s) for this operation
I will try to grant the SUPER privilege to the user and re-run the backup. Would be great to include that in the docs.
