Database Trigger Editor

Supported for
Microsoft SQL Server
Firebird (v2.1 and up)


Database Triggers are pieces of code that are executed automatically by the database engine before or after certain actions occur on a database, eg "on connect" or "on create table".


The Database Trigger Editor offers the possibility to create, alter and drop database triggers. If you add or drop a trigger, the Database Triggers node in the Database Navigator tree-view will display the change as well by adding or deleting the database trigger from the list.


Below is an example of the MS SQL Database Trigger Editor:


MS SQL Server Database Trigger Editor


When you click the flashlight button, a Select Database Events dialog is shown.

Select events from a convenient tree


As you can see, you can select the events you want and Database Workbench will use the shortest option available. That is, if a "parent" node is selected, not the values for each child node will be used, but rather the parent value.
