I installed the dashboard with a bundled MySQL db.
I noticed that after this install the service_manager user seems to have copied the "root" user and had multiple grants configured. This is completely unnecessary since the instance is local.

How to repeat:
* Install the dashboard
* suggest the service manager username as say service_manager.
* check the rights after having done this.

You'll see:


Suggested fix:
Given you install the bundled MySQL server configure it with proper grants,
and then configure the service_manager with a single user that's probably "localhost", using a socket.
