I am working in MySQL Workbench 6.3 CE and trying to use a trigger inside of a stored procedure to see if it will detect if my email format is not in the right format I specified in the message text error, but I am having trouble because it says a trigger can't be created inside of stored procedure. How else can I accomplish what I need to accomplish. This is a BEFORE TRIGGER since it will check the email validation before any rows are inserted into my Faculty table. What I am I doing wrong? Here is my SQL code below:

1

Triggers are created on actual tables, and are automatically executed when an action is performed on the table in question, they're not actually created within procedures.

So, given the table:

create table Faculty
(
LastName varchar(100), 
FirstName varchar(100), 
Email varchar(100), 
HireDate date, 
Salary integer,
DepartmentID integer
);

... your trigger code, once removed from the procedure, does work:

mysql> DELIMITER $$
mysql>
mysql> CREATE TRIGGER Review_Email_Before
    ->         BEFORE INSERT ON Faculty
    ->         FOR EACH ROW
    ->       BEGIN
    ->         IF new.Email != '^\w+(\.\w+)*+@\w+(\.\w+)+$'
    ->         THEN
    ->           SIGNAL SQLSTATE  'HY000'
    ->              SET MESSAGE_TEXT= 'This email doesn\'t match FirstLast@college.edu';
    ->         END IF ;
    -> END;
    -> $$
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.01 sec)

  • The question is marked with [mysql] tag, so the answer cannot solve the question. One must use RLIKE instead of != and use MySQL syntax of regular expressions. – Akina May 31 '18 at 5:20
