SET ROLE

MariaDB starting with 10.0.5

Roles were introduced in MariaDB 10.0.5.

Syntax

SET ROLE { role | NONE }

Description

The SET ROLE statement enables a role, along with all of its associated permissions, for the current session. To unset a role, use NONE .

If a role that doesn't exist, or to which the user has not been assigned, is specified, an ERROR 1959 (OP000): Invalid role specification error occurs.

MariaDB starting with 10.1.1

From MariaDB 10.1.1, an automatic SET ROLE is implicitly performed when a user connects if that user has been assigned a default role. See SET DEFAULT ROLE.

Example

SELECT CURRENT_ROLE;
+--------------+
| CURRENT_ROLE |
+--------------+
| NULL         |
+--------------+

SET ROLE staff;

SELECT CURRENT_ROLE;
+--------------+
| CURRENT_ROLE |
+--------------+
| staff        |
+--------------+

SET ROLE NONE;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

SELECT CURRENT_ROLE();
+----------------+
| CURRENT_ROLE() |
