RDS Mysql admin account privileges

Scarlett72 asked
Last Modified: 2020-09-28
Hi, I have created a Mysql RDS instance with the master user account named 'admin'. Shouldn't this account have DBA access? I am trying to run an infile script and am running into privileges errors. When I look at my users my admin account does not have dba privileges however the rdsadmin account does. I don't know the password for 'rdsadmin' because it was set as admin. I'm very confused at how I can access a dba role on an RDS if it doesn't give you this as the master account? Hoping someone can help my understand.
