BINLOG MONITOR Privilege
In 10.6 ES, 10.6 CS, 10.5 ES, 10.5 CS:
Grants ability to SHOW MASTER STATUS, SHOW BINARY LOGS, SHOW BINLOG EVENTS, and SHOW BINLOG STATUS. Added in MariaDB Enterprise Server 10.5 as fine-grained SUPER privilege to reduce the dependency on SUPER. Prior to this version this will have been part of SUPER.
In 10.4 ES, 10.4 CS, 10.3 ES, 10.3 CS, 10.2 ES, 10.2 CS:
Legacy privilege REPLICATION CLIENT can be used as an alias for BINLOG MONITOR in ES10.5 but the capabilities are different. BINLOG MONITOR does not grant SHOW SLAVE STATUS, or SHOW REPLICA STATUS these are granted with 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.
Information specific to MariaDB SkySQL can be found on the BINLOG MONITOR page in the SkySQL Documentation.
