Does TiDB support modifying the MySQL version string of the server to a specific one that is required by the security vulnerability scanning tool?

  • Since v3.0.8, TiDB supports modifying the version string of the server by modifying server-version in the configuration file.

  • Since v4.0, if you deploy TiDB using TiUP, you can also specify the proper version string by executing tiup cluster edit-config <cluster-name> to edit the following section:

        server-version: 'YOUR_VERSION_STRING'

    Then, use the tiup cluster reload <cluster-name> -R tidb command to make the preceding modification effective to avoid the failure of security vulnerability scan.
