REPLICATION SLAVE Privilege
Grants ability to read binary log events from the master (needed by replicas). Capabilities changed in ES10.5, see details. REPLICATION REPLICA was added as an alias in 10.5.
Grants ability to read binary log events from the primary. REQUIRED by replicas.
REPLICATION SLAVE can be used as an alias for REPLICATION REPLICA in ES10.5.
In ES10.5, REPLICATION SLAVE can no longer execute SHOW RELAYLOG EVENTS. In ES10.5 versions earlier than ES10.5.8-5, SHOW RELAYLOG EVENTS requires REPLICATION REPLICA ADMIN. In ES10.5.8-5, SHOW RELAYLOG EVENTS requires REPLICA MONITOR.
If a user upgrades from ES10.4 or earlier to ES10.5.8-5 or later, any users with REPLICATION CLIENT and REPLICATION SLAVE privileges will automatically be granted the REPLICA MONITOR privilege. This privilege upgrade happens upon server startup, so
mysql_upgradeis not required.
The upgrade behavior does not apply to minor release upgrades that upgrade from ES10.5.6-4 or earlier ES10.5.x release to ES10.5.8-5 or later.
