Display all grants of a specific user in MySQL

MySQLMySQLi Database

Let us first display all usernames along with host name −

mysql> select user,host from MySQL.user;

This will produce the following output −

+------------------+-----------+
| user             | host      |
+------------------+-----------+
| Bob              | %         |
| Charlie          | %         |
| Robert           | %         |
| User2            | %         |
| mysql.infoschema | %         |
| mysql.session    | %         |
| mysql.sys        | %         |
| root             | %         |
| @UserName@       | localhost |
| Adam             | localhost |
| Adam Smith       | localhost |
| Chris            | localhost |
| David            | localhost |
| James            | localhost |
| John             | localhost |
| John Doe         | localhost |
| Michael          | localhost |
| Mike             | localhost |
| User1            | localhost |
| am               | localhost |
| hbstudent        | localhost |
| mysql.infoschema | localhost |
| mysql.session    | localhost |

Here is the query to view all grants of a specific user −

mysql> show grants for 'John'@'localhost';

This will produce the following output −

+----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
