MySQL Workbench Manual  /  ...  /  Forward Engineering to a Live Server

9.4.1.2 Forward Engineering to a Live Server

Use forward engineering to export your schema design to a MySQL server.

Select the model that you wish to forward engineer and then choose the Database, Forward Engineer menu item from the main menu.

The first step of the process is to connect to a MySQL server to create the new database schema. As the following figure shows, this page enables you to use a previously stored connection or to enter the connection parameters.

Click Next after setting the connection parameters. The next page of the wizard displays Catalog Validation, as the following figure shows. Validation is available only in the Commercial Edition.

The next page enables you to set options for the database to be created (see the following figure). These options are as described in Section 9.4.1.1.1, “Creating a Schema”.

As the following figure shows, the Select Objects page enables you to select the objects to forward engineer: Table objects, view objects, routine objects, trigger objects, and user objects.
