A user wants the SHOWPLAN permission in order to use Execution Plans to tune a query.
What are the implications of this permission. Is it safe to grant a user? I've seen the security note here, and that doesn't concern me with this user.
Are there any other issues to be aware of? From what I see it doesn't seem like it would be a problem to give a user this permission, even on a production database.
Thanks for the help!
