Although the privilege subsystem in the server is a powerful feature, it might break some applications if they expect to perform an operation requiring a privilege that they do not have.
In the majority of these cases, you can assign the necessary privilege manually to the
account used by that application. However, if this workaround isn't sufficient, or if you
need to remove a particular privilege, such as allowing anyone to access information
through Java Management Extensions (JMX) without requiring the
privilege, then you can disable privileges on an individual basis.
disabled-privilege property in the global configuration object
controls the set of disabled privileges. By default, no privileges are disabled. If a
privilege is disabled, then the server behaves as if all users have that privilege.
