I have a question about DB privileges for QA tester. Our company has set strict rules for DB privileges and QA tester has mostly just privileges to view/read for all tables.
- There is occasionally case when tester needs to do changes in DB, and for fast / flexible testing activities is maybe good to have set better privileges (mean write) then just view in particular tables if not full DB. There is also separated department for DB changes. For flexible testing, it is pretty uncomfortable (not flexible) to ask for this kind of change.
So my questions are:
If there is any rule on how to set privileges to DB set by QA documentation or is it strictly dependant on company policy ? (ISTQB, ISO ?)
Is any strong argument on how to argue to grant better DB privileges for QA department as owner of the test environment ?
What should be the main argument ?
