I have synchronized a table between a model and a live server database in Workbench, but every time I rerun the "Synchronize With Any Source..." wizard, Workbench detects (falsely) that there is a difference between the model and the server for that table and wants to execute the exact same SQL query.

The SQL in this case is the following:

ALTER TABLE `mydb`.`user_info`

This statement has already been executed in my first run of the Wizard, and I can see that the table user_info is up to date on the live server. Why does it keep detecting it as a difference? Is it a known bug with MySQL Workbench or something...?

  • have you re-launched the wizard as it might be reading from some cached file which may have generated at first run. – Nawaz Sohail Jul 11 '16 at 13:35
  • Yes, a couple of times.. the weird thing is everytime I run the wizard it says that all the SQL was executed successfully – Neo_999 Jul 11 '16 at 13:37
  • make sure collations are same as well – Nawaz Sohail Jul 11 '16 at 13:44
  • I checked the collations. They are the same. – Neo_999 Aug 5 '16 at 16:52

Probably a bug. Some of the change detection is not catching this specific case (or interpreting it wrongly). Best is to file a bug report (http://bugs.mysql.com).
