MySQL 5.5 Reference Manual  /  INFORMATION_SCHEMA Tables  /  The INFORMATION_SCHEMA TABLE_PRIVILEGES Table

21.25 The INFORMATION_SCHEMA TABLE_PRIVILEGES Table

The TABLE_PRIVILEGES table provides information about table privileges. It takes its values from the mysql.tables_priv system table.

The TABLE_PRIVILEGES table has these columns:

  • GRANTEE

    The name of the account to which the privilege is granted, in 'user_name'@'host_name' format.

  • TABLE_CATALOG

    The name of the catalog to which the table belongs. This value is always def.

  • TABLE_SCHEMA

    The name of the schema (database) to which the table belongs.

  • TABLE_NAME

    The name of the table.

  • PRIVILEGE_TYPE

    The privilege granted. The value can be any privilege that can be granted at the table level; see Section 13.7.1.3, “GRANT Syntax”. Each row lists a single privilege, so there is one row per table privilege held by the grantee.

  • IS_GRANTABLE

    YES if the user has the GRANT OPTION privilege, NO otherwise. The output does not list GRANT OPTION as a separate row with PRIVILEGE_TYPE='GRANT OPTION'.

Notes

The following statements are not equivalent:

SELECT ... FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLE_PRIVILEGES

SHOW GRANTS ...
