Excerpts from this Manual SHOW CREATE EVENT Syntax


This statement displays the CREATE EVENT statement needed to re-create a given event. It requires the EVENT privilege for the database from which the event is to be shown. For example (using the same event e_daily defined and then altered in Section, “SHOW EVENTS Syntax”):

mysql> SHOW CREATE EVENT myschema.e_daily\G
*************************** 1. row ***************************
               Event: e_daily
           time_zone: SYSTEM
        Create Event: CREATE DEFINER=`jon`@`ghidora` EVENT `e_daily`
                        ON SCHEDULE EVERY 1 DAY
                        ON COMPLETION NOT PRESERVE
                        COMMENT 'Saves total number of sessions then
                                clears the table each day'
                        DO BEGIN
                          INSERT INTO site_activity.totals (time, total)
                            SELECT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP, COUNT(*)
                              FROM site_activity.sessions;
                          DELETE FROM site_activity.sessions;
character_set_client: utf8
collation_connection: utf8_general_ci
  Database Collation: latin1_swedish_ci

character_set_client is the session value of the character_set_client system variable when the event was created. collation_connection is the session value of the collation_connection system variable when the event was created. Database Collation is the collation of the database with which the event is associated.

Note that the output reflects the current status of the event (ENABLE) rather than the status with which it was created.
