Create user problem in function

Create user problem in function

Create user problem in function


hi all, i'm encountering one big problem. and i would appreciate it if someone can give me some hints or idea. it happens like this, when i use the CREATE USER ... WITH PASSWORD command in the psql command prompt to create a user, i manage to create it. then i \q from pgsql and log into one of the db using the login i created. it works fine.

the problem is when i put the create user syntax in a function. My situation is, when an insert is performed, a trigger will fire and create a user with a password into the pg_shadow file. when i quit from pgsql and log in again using the login created, i won't be able to log in coz it gives me a mesg saying that i'm not authorize to log in (password error).
can i know what is the problem coz i'm using the same command syntax to create the user. the only difference is one is create from command line and the other is create from a function. pls help..... i've been debugging this prob for one whole day. thanks in advance.
