Users and roles

Different databases use concepts of users and roles to manage the permissions in your databases. Both of them are used for access control and define a set of permissions. In some databases, a role can be a user that has the login right.

Users and roles ( User and Role) can be found in the Database tool window under Server Objects. For the reference on other node and object icons, refer to the Data sources and their elements chapter of Database tool window topic.

Users and roles in Database

Users and roles are not supported for the following database vendors: BigQuery, Couchbase Query, HSQLDB, MongoDB, Redis.

Create a user or a role

    You can use auto-completion for database objects.
