In order to collect data from the DSE node, and perform maintenance operations, datastax-agent requires permissions to access various keyspaces in DSE. Many customers run datastax-agent as an administrative user with full permissions, but it is possible to reduce its level of privilege.
- Permissions to create tables and keyspaces.
- Read and write access to the 'opsc' keyspace.
- Read access to system keyspaces.
- Optionally, if the performance service is used read access to all tables and keyspaces is required for query tracing.
