MySQL 5.7 Reference Manual  /  ...  /  Account Management Statements

14.7.1 Account Management Statements

MySQL account information is stored in the tables of the mysql database. This database and the access control system are discussed extensively in Chapter 6, MySQL Server Administration, which you should consult for additional details.

Important

Some releases of MySQL introduce changes to the structure of the grant tables to add new privileges or features. To ensure that you can take advantage of any new capabilities, update your grant tables to have the current structure whenever you update to a new version of MySQL. See Section 5.4.7, “mysql_upgrade — Check and Upgrade MySQL Tables”.

When the read_only system variable is enabled, account-management statements require the SUPER privilege, in addition to any other required privileges. This is because they modify tables in the mysql database.
