Export User Accounts from MySQL 8 and Import to MariaDB


Is there any way to export user accounts/passwords and privileges from a mysql 8 server to a mariadb 10.3+ server. I have an ubuntu server that has been upgraded numerous time from ubuntu 12.04 up to 20.04 and missed the move to mariadb before the update from mysql 5.

Many Thanks Andy

based on MDEV-23630 from recently there should be a way using :

mysqldump --system=users

Did you try ?
