Permissions for postgres / metricbeat account?

I'd like to monitor postgresql using the metricbeat module. To this end I want to use a separate psql account from any other logins.

What permissions does this account need?

By looking at, you will need to specify hosts and then if you have username/password to connect to postgres, then specify those in metricbeat postgresql configuration as well. Is that what you are looking for?
