ConnectSE: Excessive FILE privilege requirement for read-only operations

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

      Description

      Currently to use an outward CONNECT table, one needs the FILE privilege not only for DDL operations (which is completely reasonable) or for DML (which is questionable, but possibly all right), but even for SELECT, which makes the use of the engine limited to either administrative or testing purposes.

      I suppose there is no real need in FILE privilege for SELECT operations, please lift it if possible.

      Please also consider whether it's needed for INSERT/UPDATE/DELETE.
