Today we gonna guide you through how to show all users in the MySQL users Database.
A common question that most beginner MySQL users ask is “How do I see all of the users in my MySQL server?” Most of them assume that there is a show users command in MySQL, but there isn’t one. This is a common mistake because there are other MySQL commands for displaying information about the database. For example,
SHOW DATABASES will show us all of the databases that are present in our MySQL Server, and
SHOW TABLES will show us all the tables in the MySQL database that you have selected.
It’s not unusual for people to assume that there should be a
SHOW USERS command in MySQL. Even though there isn’t a specific command for it, there are several ways to actually see the list of users and even filter them to see exactly what you need. This can all be done with the MySQL command line tool – let’s get started.
