Google Cloud SQL : SUPER privilege error while importing – Nicolas BAPTISTA

Google Cloud SQL : SUPER privilege error while importing

When importing SQL file on Google Cloud (MySQL 5.7), I faced the following error:

exit status 1 ERROR 1227 (42000) at line 18: Access denied; you need (at least one of) the SUPER privilege(s) for this operation  

You can see the error when go in “Operation”, you can see the logs of the MySQL instance

In order to solve this problem, you should understand that we do not have SUPER privileges on the Google Cloud SQL instance, it means if you do “SHOW GRANTS” on your MySQL, it will tell you that you have almost all the rights but not all.

This problem happen when you try to import some specific things such triggers, views, … so you should be careful on the SQL export when you do it.
As for me, I’m using MySQL Workbench 8.0, it seems that by default I have this error when I try to import the SQL file generated on Google Cloud.
I tried to import an export from Google Cloud to another instance and seems to work, so the problem is when you export the SQL file it should not contains things that needs specific privileges.
I found a configuration that worked for me and now I don’t have this annoying error anymore. Great !
Here is the options I have used. First, when you export, go to Advanced Options…


Then you should check the following options:

Now you can try to import the SQL file on Google Cloud, it should works ! F*ck yeah!
