Root cause: Permissions

This error appears to be an issue with the permissions to the SharePoint configuration database.The general recommendation I found was to ensure that the application pool identity of the web application has sufficient permissions on the config database.

Million thanks to Microsoft's Team who has created this article:

Details Steps:
-In order to resolve the issue, I provided Execute permission to the database role “WSS_Content_Application_Pools” into the stored procedure “proc_putObject”. I performed the following steps to do this.
-In the database server, expand SharePoint Config database and naviage to Programmability/Stored Procedures/dbo.proc_putObject using SQL Server Management Studio.
-Right click on the above stored procedure and select Properties.
-On the popup screen, select Permissions on the left and click Search button.
-On the new popup screen, click Search, select [WSS_Content_Application_Pools] database role and click OK.
-Click OK again.
-On the first popup screen, select the role, check Execute permission and click OK.

If you have any queries/questions then please let me know, thank you.
