   I want to add a proxy user to the account. I try it in MySQL Server 5.6.21 in the following.
CREATE USER 'proxy'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED WITH test_plugin_server AS 'proxy';
CREATE USER 'proxied'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'proxied';
GRANT PROXY ON 'proxied'@'localhost' TO 'proxy'@'localhost';

Then I connect server from localhost by the following command. 
mysql -uproxy -pproxy

However, It seems that it does not take effect.
mysql> SELECT @@proxy_user;                                                                                                                                            +--------------+
| @@proxy_user |
| NULL         |
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

is it a bug or  misused it ?

Hello WANG,

Thank you for the report.
I'm not seeing this issue at my end. Also, the value is NULL if proxying is not used. Otherwise, it indicates the proxy user account.

If you can provide more information, feel free to add it to this bug and change the status back to 'Open'.
Thank you for your interest in MySQL.
