Re: In MySQL 8, how do you distinguish between Roles and Users in table mysql.user?

Hello Peter,

Although it seems right at first glance, I noticed you can also create users without a password.

And although this may sound silly to you, it means that such users can't be properly distinguished from roles.

Any other ideas? MariaDB has added a column 'Is_Role'.

With regards,
