The GRANT statement provides the following access limitations on a user:
- The number of queries per hour
- The number of updates per hour
- The number of connections to the server per hour
- The number of simultaneous connections to the server
There is no built in method to limit the number of times a user may access a particular table outside of the per hour limits.
You can use stored procedures to limit user access to data. Construct a stored procedure that logs user access to the table (referencing the CURRENT_USER() function as needed), and exits early if the table has already been accessed. Give your users access only to the stored procedure, and not directly to the table itself.
