The primary function of the MySQL privilege system is to authenticate a user who connects from a given host and to associate that user with privileges on a database such as SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE. Additional functionality includes the ability to have anonymous users and to grant privileges for MySQL-specific functions such as LOAD DATA INFILE and administrative operations.


The MySQL privilege system ensures that all users may perform only the operations allowed to them.



New users are created within Create User Wizard. In order to run the wizard you should open the server in Server Editor and the Users tab there and press Insert or select the Create New User item from the popup menu (Alternatively, use the corresponding link of the Navigation Bar).




Users are edited within User Editor. In order to run the editor you should


select the user for editing in the explorer tree (type the first letters of the user name for quick search);
select the Edit User item from the popup menu.




To drop the existing user:


select the user to drop in the explorer tree;
select the Drop User item from the popup menu(alternatively, you may use the corresponding link of the Navigation Bar)


and confirm dropping in the dialog window.
