Better User Management under MySQL 8.0

MySQL has added many new features to make user account management easier. The server can now generate random passwords that follow the rules you manage. If you have too many 'Dave's or 'Fred's in your organization, you can store GCOS like information in the mysql.user.User_attributes column to directly identify who you are referencing. And you can now have dual passwords on an account. These additions can make account management much easier but only if you know about them!
