ALTER USER | TiDB SQL Statement Reference
An overview of the usage of ALTER USER for the TiDB database.

ALTER USER

This statement changes an existing user inside the TiDB privilege system. In the MySQL privilege system, a user is the combination of a username and the host from which they are connecting from. Thus, it is possible to create a user 'newuser2'@'192.168.1.1' who is only able to connect from the IP address 192.168.1.1. It is also possible to have two users have the same user-portion, and different permissions as they login from different hosts.
