Our https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Connecting+JIRA+to+SQL+Server+2012 docs indicate to setup a dedicated user for the JIRA database, and give them the db_owner permission to that database. This is required as JIRA will create tables, sequences and other information inside of the database when plugins are installed or upgraded.

Hi,

As Atlassian recommends to create a dedicated user to access a jira database considering you have created separate database for JIRA.

you can a MySQL user called 'jirauser' and database called 'jiradb' and grant permissions to only jirauser to access 'jiradb'

please refer below documents.

I hope it would help!

thanks
