1. MySQL users management using ProxySQL Tools

MySQL users management using ProxySQL Tools

Recently, we have implemented a set of new commands in ProxySQL Tools to manage MySQL users. You can create, delete, and modify users from command line. There are commands:

You can set a user’s password can be set at time of creation with —-password option or later on with  set_password sub-command.

Create user

Let’s add MySQL user to ProxySQL Tools with the next params:

Username: mysql_user
Password: mysql_user_password
Active: True
Use SSL: True
Default hostgroup: 10
Default schema: information_schema
Schema locked: True
Transaction persistent: True
Fast forward: True
Backend: True
Frontend: True
Max connections: 10000

Modify user

Let’s now modify a user:

Delete user

Now, let’s try to delete a user using ProxySQL Tools:


The new features aim to improve MySQL user management in ProxySQL. You don’t need to manually add or change users via mysql_users table, all changes can be made with ProxySQL Tools.

    Hi Maksyme! I’d like to clarify some significant point for me. Does user/database management goes from well-known mysqladmin:80 web-behavior to somewhat admin specific CLI? Is there any web UI to satisfy both proxysql and Mysql-galera permission system?

    • To be honest, I didn’t understand the question.
      But have to note nothing from above has anything to do with webservers.

        Ok, perhabs I didnt got the point with user managenent in Mysql cluster and Proxysql. It is separate auth storages, right? So, when i’m adding new user to galera cluster, i have also to add the same user (proxysql-admin –sync) to proxysql?
