VIEW SERVER STATE permission was denied on object ‘server’, database ‘master’.

With one of the application I have seen below error when working with SQL Server

VIEW SERVER STATE permission was denied on object ‘server’, database ‘master’ ( Microsoft SQL Server , Error: 300)

The issue is user don’t have VIEW SERVER STATE permission. Note that this will allow an auditing process to view all data or all database states on the instance of SQL Server.

The below command should solve the issue, but before you grant make sure you understand the implications of granting the below permission.
