The GRANT command creates a new user if the specified username does not exist.

This command can be run on any MemSQL node. For more information, see the Node Requirements for MemSQL Commands.

Examples

The following example demonstrates how to grant privileges to the existing memsql_admin user:

memsql> GRANT ALL ON *.* TO 'memsql_admin'@'%' IDENTIFIED BY 'password' WITH GRANT OPTION;

The following example demonstrates how to grant the specified privileges to all databases to the full_backups_role role.

memsql> GRANT BACKUP, RELOAD ON *.* TO ROLE 'full_backups_role';
Info

If you removed ROLE from the example above, the GRANT command would apply privileges to the user 'full_backup_role'@'%'.
