      Description

      This is a feature request for being able to distinguish between application and human use if a MariaDB user account can be used by both an application setup, and directly by a human using the mysql command line client.

      A user may interested in only auditing manual human interaction while ignoring the automatic application use.

      There are two different approaches by which a human use may be detected:

      • by checking for the CLIENT_INTERACTIVE flag of the connection being set
      • by checking to what value the "progname" attribute of the connection is being set to

      E.g.:

      server_audit_incl_attr=progname:mysql

      or

      server_audit_excl_attr=progname:myapplication

      or even as simple as

      server_audit_interactive_only=yes
