Syntax

SHOW CREATE EVENT event_name

Description

This statement displays the CREATE EVENT statement needed to re-create a given event, as well as the SQL_MODE that was used when the trigger has been created and the character set used by the connection.. To find out which events are present, use SHOW EVENTS.

The output of this statement is unreliably affected by the sql_quote_show_create server system variable - see http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=12719

The INFORMATION_SCHEMA.EVENTS table provides similar, but more complete, information.

Examples

SHOW CREATE EVENT test.e_daily\G
*************************** 1. row ***************************
               Event: e_daily

                            FROM site_activity.sessions;
                          DELETE FROM site_activity.sessions;
