MySQL Views and ExplainOctober 13th, 2013
This week, I ran into a problem when I was profiling that didn’t seem to be very well documented anywhere. I was trying to profile a query that included a view. The error message that I got when I tried to execute my EXPLAIN was: “EXPLAIN/SHOW can not be issued; lacking privileges for underlying table”
After a lot of flailing out, me and the DBA for this project figured out that in order to be able to execute my EXPLAIN, I needed to have SELECT on the key columns that I was using in my query for the table behind the view. Simple enough, but not something made easy to figure out.
Hopefully this helps someone else figure this out faster.
