SHOW CREATE TRIGGER trigger_name

This statement shows the CREATE TRIGGER statement that creates the named trigger. This statement requires the TRIGGER privilege for the table associated with the trigger.

                        BEFORE INSERT ON account
                        FOR EACH ROW SET @sum = @sum + NEW.amount

SHOW CREATE TRIGGER output has these columns:

  • Trigger: The trigger name.

  • sql_mode: The SQL mode in effect when the trigger executes.

  • SQL Original Statement: The CREATE TRIGGER statement that defines the trigger.

  • character_set_client: The session value of the character_set_client system variable when the trigger was created.

  • collation_connection: The session value of the collation_connection system variable when the trigger was created.

  • Database Collation: The collation of the database with which the trigger is associated.

  • Created: The date and time when the trigger was created. This is a TIMESTAMP(2) value (with a fractional part in hundredths of seconds) for triggers created in MySQL 5.7.2 or later, NULL for triggers created prior to 5.7.2.

Trigger information is also available from the INFORMATION_SCHEMA TRIGGERS table. See Section 24.29, “The INFORMATION_SCHEMA TRIGGERS Table”.
