START GROUP_REPLICATION can now take recovery credentials as parameters

From MySQL 8.0.21 onwards, START GROUP_REPLICATION includes new options which allow a user to specify credentials to be used for distributed recovery. You can now pass credentials when invoking START GROUP_REPLICATION instead of setting them when configuring the group_replication_recovery channel.

START GROUP_REPLICATION command now has the options:

  • USER: User name.
