13.7.6.38 SHOW TRIGGERS Syntax

SHOW TRIGGERS
    [{FROM | IN} db_name]
    [LIKE 'pattern' | WHERE expr]

SHOW TRIGGERS lists the triggers currently defined for tables in a database (the default database unless a FROM clause is given). This statement returns results only for databases and tables for which you have the TRIGGER privilege. The LIKE clause, if present, indicates which table names (not trigger names) to match and causes the statement to display triggers for those tables. The WHERE clause can be given to select rows using more general conditions, as discussed in Section 25.42, “Extensions to SHOW Statements”.

For the ins_sum trigger defined in Section 24.3, “Using Triggers”, the output of SHOW TRIGGERS is as shown here:

mysql> SHOW TRIGGERS LIKE 'acc%'\G
*************************** 1. row ***************************
             Trigger: ins_sum
               Event: INSERT
               Table: account
           Statement: SET @sum = @sum + NEW.amount
              Timing: BEFORE
