MySQL Information Schema  /  The INFORMATION_SCHEMA VIEW_ROUTINE_USAGE Table

Chapter 44 The INFORMATION_SCHEMA VIEW_ROUTINE_USAGE Table

The VIEW_ROUTINE_USAGE table (available as of MySQL 8.0.13) provides access to information about stored functions used in view definitions. The table does not list information about built-in SQL functions or user-defined functions (UDFs) used in the definitions.

You can see information only for views for which you have some privilege, and only for functions for which you have some privilege.

The VIEW_ROUTINE_USAGE table has these columns:

  • TABLE_CATALOG

    The name of the catalog to which the view belongs. This value is always def.

  • TABLE_SCHEMA

    The name of the schema (database) to which the view belongs.

  • TABLE_NAME

    The name of the view.

  • SPECIFIC_CATALOG

    The name of the catalog to which the function used in the view definition belongs. This value is always def.

  • SPECIFIC_SCHEMA

    The name of the schema (database) to which the function used in the view definition belongs.

  • SPECIFIC_NAME

    The name of the function used in the view definition.
