    Hi John,

    Apologies for the delayed response here, I'm Kevin from the product team here at Fivetran!

    The CREATE permission is utilized whenever a new connector is set up, so removing this requirement would mean adding a manual step to each new connector setup process, rather than having a fully automated process (which this permission provides for us).

    However, I definitely hear you that more security-conscious customers might not allow this internally. I would be curious to hear if other permissions in our documented requirements would be a blocker for you? Additionally, if this permission were optional, would it be acceptable to manually run additional steps to set up each connector afterwards?

Didn’t find what you need?
