13.7.5.18 SHOW EVENTS Syntax

SHOW EVENTS
    [{FROM | IN} schema_name]
    [LIKE 'pattern' | WHERE expr]

This statement displays information about Event Manager events, which are discussed in Section 23.4, “Using the Event Scheduler”. It requires the EVENT privilege for the database from which the events are to be shown.

In its simplest form, SHOW EVENTS lists all of the events in the current schema:

mysql> SELECT CURRENT_USER(), SCHEMA();
+----------------+----------+
| CURRENT_USER() | SCHEMA() |
+----------------+----------+
| jon@ghidora    | myschema |
+----------------+----------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

mysql> SHOW EVENTS\G
*************************** 1. row ***************************
                  Db: myschema
                Name: e_daily
             Definer: jon@ghidora
           Time zone: SYSTEM
                Type: RECURRING

          Originator: 1
character_set_client: utf8
collation_connection: utf8_general_ci

To see events for a specific schema, use the FROM clause. For example, to see events for the test schema, use the following statement:

SHOW EVENTS FROM test;

The LIKE clause, if present, indicates which event names to match. The WHERE clause can be given to select rows using more general conditions, as discussed in Section 24.35, “Extensions to SHOW Statements”.

SHOW EVENTS output has these columns:

For more information about SLAVESIDE_DISABLED and the Originator column, see Section 16.4.1.16, “Replication of Invoked Features”.

Times displayed by SHOW EVENTS are given in the event time zone, as discussed in Section 23.4.4, “Event Metadata”.

Event information is also available from the INFORMATION_SCHEMA EVENTS table. See Section 24.8, “The INFORMATION_SCHEMA EVENTS Table”.

The event action statement is not shown in the output of SHOW EVENTS. Use SHOW CREATE EVENT or the INFORMATION_SCHEMA EVENTS table.
