How to use the CURRENT_ROLE() function in MySQL and MariaDB databases
In MySQL and MariaDB the CURRENT_ROLE() function can be used to return the name of the current privilege role.
In MySQL and MariaDB, roles are a way to manage and control user permissions. A set of permissions can be grouped in a role and assigned to multiple users.
