  • 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.
