Need to include GRANT statements in the documentation
Customers struggle in setting up the applications so that they can be monitored by Instana. In our DB2 sensor documentation, we include the privileges that are required in order to monitor the database, but we don't include the commands necessary to do it. In addition, some of the privileges are vague. For example, we say to GRANT "table functions/views or procedures". The syntax is different depending on the object that is being access.
Ideally, we should provide a code block in the documentation that a customer could execute. For example, set an environment variable like $USER. Then, use that variable in the code block with statements similar to the one below:
db2 "grant execute on FUNCTION SYSPROC.MON_GET_INSTANCE to USER $USER"
Then, the customer could simply copy and paste the entire code block.
