USER

Syntax

USER()

Description

Returns the current MariaDB user name and host name, given when authenticating to MariaDB, as a string in the utf8 character set.

Note that the value of USER() may differ from the value of CURRENT_USER(), which is the user used to authenticate the current client. CURRENT_ROLE() returns the current active role.

SYSTEM_USER() and SESSION_USER are synonyms for USER().

Statements using the USER() function or one of its synonyms are not safe for statement level replication.

Examples

shell> mysql --user="anonymous"

MariaDB [(none)]> select user(),current_user();
+---------------------+----------------+
| user()              | current_user() |
