Firebird 2 changed user management by preventing you from making
connections to the security database. That used to be a security flaw.

Any user management must now go through the services API. I suppose it
is still possible to write a UDF to achieve this, but it is not
advisable because you are reintroducing the same security flaw that
was removed.

Instead of looking for a UDF, you should use the Services API from
your Delphi application to manage users. Most component sets expose
this API.
