The SQL Editor sidebar contains several different panels, and each panel has multiple tabs. The top-level panels are:
Navigator: On the left side, it contains several options including:
Management: Options for managing the MySQL connection and its associated data, such as Server Status, Users and Privileges, and Data Export.
Instance: Options to interact with the MySQL instance, such as Start/Stop, and viewing the logs and options file.
Performance: Provides a graphical representation of key statistics from the MySQL server status, and provides an overview of the MySQL server subsystems.
Schemas: Schema information for the MySQL Connection. Optionally, the Schemas panel can be its own tab, or combined (default) with the Navigator sidebar.
MySQL Enterprise: With the commercial version of MySQL Workbench, options include using the Audit Inspector, Online Backup, and Backup Recovery enterprise features.
Information: This panel, on the bottom left sidebar, includes two tabs. The Object Info displays information about the selected Schema Object. For example, it displays the column structure if a table is selected, or a function definition for a function. The Session tab summarizes information about the object, such as the Connection name, login user, and port.
SQL Additions: This includes the Context Help and Snippets tabs. For more information, see Section 220.127.116.11, “Snippets tab”.
