READFILE authority

The READFILE authority allows a user to use the OPENSTRING clause in a SELECT statement to read a file. Without READFILE authority, the user can still use the OPENSTRING clause to query a string or BLOB value, but not a file.

The READFILE authority can be inherited through group membership.

For more information about using the OPENSTRING clause in a SELECT statement, see FROM clause.
