  2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Accounts.
  3. Find the standard account whose permissions you want to modify, and click Edit Permissions in the Actions column.
  4. In the Modify Account Permissions panel, modify the permissions of the standard account.
    • If you want to add or remove an authorized database, select the database and click the > or < icon.
    • If you want to modify the permissions on an authorized database, select the database and then select the Read/Write (DML), Read-only, or Owner permissions in the Authorized Databases section.
  5. Click OK.
