One more annoying question about Prefect Helm chart. this is for an admin user capable of creating a new database within the server. Is it also possible to specify username and password for the “prefect” user?

Could you elaborate on what you mean by "prefect" user in this context, I would think that provided the postgres database exists and provided the user has the appropriate permissions to manage the postgres db for Orion then I would think that should be sufficient, Admittedly not an expert on haha 😅

If you ask in an issue on

I see
@Mason Menges there are typically two pair of credentials involved, in my experience: • a superuser credential, which is allowed to create the database, an application user, and perform grants • the application user which is going to be used at runtime to read and write If you look at the helm values.yml you will see that is not easy to understand which one belong to one user, and which one belong to the other
