The MySQL user: For Monitor Agents to report the status of a MySQL server, they connect to a MySQL user with privileges to read any data on that server: SHOW DATABASES, REPLICATION CLIENT, SUPER, CREATE, and SELECT. If you already have such a user on a MySQL server, specify its credentials when installing the Agent for that server. For details about this account, see Section 5.2, “Creating MySQL User Accounts for the Monitor Agent”.

The My Oracle Support user: These are the credentials you use to log in to the My Oracle Support web site. The What's New page accesses this account to receive updates and examine relevant service issues.
