proxysql_mysql_users – Adds or removes mysql users from proxysql admin interface

New in version 2.3.

Synopsis

Requirements

The below requirements are needed on the host that executes this module.

  • PyMySQL (Python 2.7 and Python 3.X), or
  • MySQLdb (Python 2.x)

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
active
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
A user with active set to False will be tracked in the database, but will be never loaded in the in-memory data structures. If omitted the proxysql database default for active is True.
backend
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
If backend is set to True, this (username, password) pair is used for authenticating to the ProxySQL instance.
config_file
path
Default:
""
Specify a config file from which login_user and login_password are to be read.
default_hostgroup
-
If there is no matching rule for the queries sent by this user, the traffic it generates is sent to the specified hostgroup. If omitted the proxysql database default for use_ssl is 0.
default_schema
-
The schema to which the connection should change to by default.
fast_forward
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
If fast_forward is set to True, fast_forward will bypass the query processing layer (rewriting, caching) and pass through the query directly as is to the backend server. If omitted the proxysql database default for fast_forward is False.
frontend
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
If frontend is set to True, this (username, password) pair is used for authenticating to the mysqld servers against any hostgroup.
load_to_runtime
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
Dynamically load config to runtime memory.
login_host
string
Default:
"127.0.0.1"
The host used to connect to ProxySQL admin interface.
login_password
string
The password used to authenticate to ProxySQL admin interface.
login_port
integer
Default:
6032
The port used to connect to ProxySQL admin interface.
login_user
string
The username used to authenticate to ProxySQL admin interface.
max_connections
-
The maximum number of connections ProxySQL will open to the backend for this user. If omitted the proxysql database default for max_connections is 10000.
password
-
Password of the user connecting to the mysqld or ProxySQL instance.
save_to_disk
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
Save config to sqlite db on disk to persist the configuration.
state
-
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
When present - adds the user, when absent - removes the user.
transaction_persistent
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
If this is set for the user with which the MySQL client is connecting to ProxySQL (thus a "frontend" user), transactions started within a hostgroup will remain within that hostgroup regardless of any other rules. If omitted the proxysql database default for transaction_persistent is False.
use_ssl
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
If use_ssl is set to True, connections by this user will be made using SSL connections. If omitted the proxysql database default for use_ssl is False.
username
- / required
Name of the user connecting to the mysqld or ProxySQL instance.

Examples

---
# This example adds a user, it saves the mysql user config to disk, but
# avoids loading the mysql user config to runtime (this might be because
# several users are being added and the user wants to push the config to
# runtime in a single batch using the M(proxysql_manage_config) module).  It
# uses supplied credentials to connect to the proxysql admin interface.

- proxysql_mysql_users:
    login_user: 'admin'
    login_password: 'admin'
    username: 'productiondba'
    state: present
    load_to_runtime: False

# This example removes a user, saves the mysql user config to disk, and
# dynamically loads the mysql user config to runtime.  It uses credentials
# in a supplied config file to connect to the proxysql admin interface.

- proxysql_mysql_users:
    config_file: '~/proxysql.cnf'
    username: 'mysqlboy'
    state: absent
