Steps to Reproduce

Not Applicable

Root Cause

For the install, DATA Schema User was used instead of DeploymentUser.


Make the following change to the operating environment:

Use the DeploymentUser for the install such that the user does not grant permissions to itself and instead will grants permissions to the Rules and Data schema owners.
