MySQL 5.7 Reference Manual  /  ...  /  Replication and User Name Length

16.4.1.36 Replication and User Name Length

The maximum length of MySQL user names was increased from 16 characters to 32 characters in MySQL 5.7.8. Replication of user names longer than 16 characters to a slave that supports only shorter user names will fail. However, this should occur only when replicating from a newer master to an older slave, which is not a recommended configuration.
