Question:
Our database security policies implies no "view server state" grants can be assigned to specific database users. Is there any workaround to have this limitation overcome and not have to assign such grants to the database user? 
Environment:
CA Test Data Manager (TDM)- Datamaker
Answer:
Unfortunately there is no workaround to granting the 'View Server State' permissions. It is required to use TDM. You are not the only customer with these security restrictions, so development has put a user story (enhancement request) in the product backlog to look at removing this. However, we have no ETA for when this will be removed and it is currently required. The internal tracking number is US457105. If you reach out to your account manager, they will be able to work directly with product management on escalating this if needed. For now, we require that your DBA grant this permission to TDM users.
