13.7.5.12 SHOW CREATE USER Syntax

SHOW CREATE USER user

This statement shows the CREATE USER statement that creates the named user. An error occurs if the user does not exist. The statement requires the SELECT privilege for the mysql database, except to display information for the current user.

To name the account, use the format described in Section 6.2.3, “Specifying Account Names”. The host name part of the account name, if omitted, defaults to '%'. It is also possible to specify CURRENT_USER or CURRENT_USER() to refer to the account associated with the current session.

mysql> SHOW CREATE USER 'root'@'localhost'\G
*************************** 1. row ***************************
CREATE USER for root@localhost: CREATE USER 'root'@'localhost'
IDENTIFIED WITH 'mysql_native_password'
AS '*2470C0C06DEE42FD1618BB99005ADCA2EC9D1E19'
REQUIRE NONE PASSWORD EXPIRE DEFAULT ACCOUNT UNLOCK

The output format is affected by the setting of the log_builtin_as_identified_by_password system variable.

To display the privileges granted to an account, use the SHOW GRANTS statement. See Section 13.7.5.21, “SHOW GRANTS Syntax”.
