Community Matters

Building on community

Percona is very committed to open source database software. We think of ourselves as unbiased champions of open source database solutions. With that, we also carry a responsibility to the open source database community – whether MySQL®, MongoDB®, ProxySQL or other open source database technology. We’ve seen that, and taken action by hiring a Community Manager.

That’s me. Which is great… For me!

And my job, in a nutshell, is to help to make our community great for you. By building on the good stuff that’s been done in the past and finding ways to do more.

The common thread tying the community together is the sharing of information, experience, and knowledge. Hundreds of you have taken part in Percona Live or Percona Live Europe — thank you for that! …

Revisiting roles in MySQL 8.0

In my previous article about roles I said that one of the problems with role usage is that roles need to be activated before they kick in. Let's recap briefly what the problem is:

## new session, as user `root`

mysql [localhost] {root} ((none)) > create role viewer;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.01 sec)

mysql [localhost] {root} ((none)) > grant select on *.* to viewer;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.01 sec)

mysql [localhost] {root} ((none)) > create user see_it_all identified by 'msandbox';
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.01 sec)

mysql [localhost] {root} ((none)) > grant viewer to see_it_all;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.01 sec)
