This assume you are able to connect to MariaDB. The SELECT statement can be used to view a users privileges. In this example, root can SELECT, INSERT and UPDATE, but John cannot.

MariaDB [(none)]> select user,host,Select_priv,Insert_priv,Update_priv from mysql.user;
+------------------------------------------------------------+
| user | host      | Select_priv | Insert_priv | Update_priv |
+------------------------------------------------------------+
| root | 127.0.0.1 | Y           | Y           | Y           |
| root | ::1       | Y           | Y           | Y           |
| root | localhost | Y           | Y           | Y           |
| John | localhost | N           | N           | N           |
| John | %         | N           | N           | N           |
