20.2.2 Stored Routines and MySQL Privileges

The MySQL grant system takes stored routines into account as follows:

  • The CREATE ROUTINE privilege is needed to create stored routines.

  • The ALTER ROUTINE privilege is needed to alter or drop stored routines. This privilege is granted automatically to the creator of a routine if necessary, and dropped from the creator when the routine is dropped.

  • The EXECUTE privilege is required to execute stored routines. However, this privilege is granted automatically to the creator of a routine if necessary (and dropped from the creator when the routine is dropped). Also, the default SQL SECURITY characteristic for a routine is DEFINER, which enables users who have access to the database with which the routine is associated to execute the routine.

  • If the automatic_sp_privileges system variable is 0, the EXECUTE and ALTER ROUTINE privileges are not automatically granted to and dropped from the routine creator.

  • The creator of a routine is the account used to execute the CREATE statement for it. This might not be the same as the account named as the DEFINER in the routine definition.

The server manipulates the mysql.proc table in response to statements that create, alter, or drop stored routines. It is not supported that the server will notice manual manipulation of this table.
