MySQL Workbench

8.0.17.CE
22 July 2019

Efficiently design, manage and document database schemata.

Overview

MySQL Workbench is a next-generation visual database design application that can be used to efficiently design, manage and document database schemata.

Design

MySQL Workbench enables a DBA, developer, or data architect to visually design, model, generate, and manage databases. It includes everything a data modeler needs for creating complex ER models, forward and reverse engineering, and also delivers key features for performing difficult change management and documentation tasks that normally require much time and effort.

Develop

MySQL Workbench delivers visual tools for creating, executing, and optimizing SQL queries. The SQL Editor provides color syntax highlighting, auto-complete, reuse of SQL snippets, and execution history of SQL. The Database Connections Panel enables developers to easily manage standard database connections, including MySQL Fabric. The Object Browser provides instant access to database schema and objects.

Administer

MySQL Workbench provides a visual console to easily administer MySQL environments and gain better visibility into databases. Developers and DBAs can use the visual tools for configuring servers, administering users, performing backup and recovery, inspecting audit data, and viewing database health.

Visual Performance Dashboard

MySQL Workbench provides a suite of tools to improve the performance of MySQL applications. DBAs can quickly view key performance indicators using the Performance Dashboard. Performance Reports provide easy identification and access to IO hotspots, high cost SQL statements, and more. Plus, with 1 click, developers can see where to optimize their query with the improved and easy to use Visual Explain Plan.

Database Migration

MySQL Workbench now provides a complete, easy to use solution for migrating Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Access, Sybase ASE, PostreSQL, and other RDBMS tables, objects and data to MySQL. Developers and DBAs can quickly and easily convert existing applications to run on MySQL both on Windows and other platforms. Migration also supports migrating from earlier versions of MySQL to the latest releases.

It is available as both open source and commercial editions. The Community (OSS) Edition is available from this page under the free software/open source GNU General Public License (commonly known as the "GPL").

What's new in MySQL Workbench

Version 8.0.17.CE:

Note: Now requires OS X 10.14 or later

Functionality Added or Changed:
  • All editions of MySQL Workbench and the bundled libraries were upgraded to use OpenSSL 1.0.2r. (Bug #29489010)
  • MySQL Workbench grammar updates now enable the language features of each supported MySQL server version from MySQL 5.6 to MySQL 8.0, including the new language features in MySQL Server 8.0.17 (see MySQL)
  • The implementation for SSH connections now uses libssh version 0.8.7, which replaces the previous version of libssh
Bugs Fixed:
  • An empty page was shown when Show License Info was selected from the Help menu. (Bug #29821258)
  • Remote management did not work after the SSH port number on the destination computer was changed; instead, it continued to use the default port number. (Bug #29784254, Bug #95221)
  • On Windows, an error at startup prevented the successful fetching of database objects for display in the Schemas tab. (Bug #29772769, Bug #95335)
  • The informational dialog box did not open after About Workbench was selected from the Help menu on hosts running Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS. (Bug #29754218)
  • Database objects were not fetched as expected when any schema shown in the Schemas tab (located in the Navigator sidebar panel) for a valid connection was expanded. (Bug #29752794)
  • The Reverse Engineering Database wizard stopped working during the final step and generated an error message on hosts running Fedora 29. Also, general editing activities were affected. (Bug #29598807, Bug #94894, Bug #29528028, Bug #94757)
  • A syntax error in a view that was generated using the view tool within an EER model caused MySQL Workbench to stop working when the view was closed. (Bug #29558534)
  • An attempt to create an EER model by reverse engineering a script and selecting a dump file generated errors instead of creating the model. (Bug #29535589)
  • The copy_migrated_tables.cmd batch file, generated by the Migration Wizard, closed without performing the expected tasks after file was executed properly. (Bug #29516531)
  • The online backup operation returned an error indicating insufficient privileges for an account with sufficient privileges. (Bug #29515528)
  • An exception was raised when a new firewall rule was added without also selecting the option to indicate that the rule (or SQL statement) is a normalized rule. (Bug #29514458)
  • An exception resulted when any variable category was right-clicked within the Administration - Status and System Variables tab. (Bug #29509495)
  • An exception resulted when Show Columns was selected (right-clicked) to enable a column for any of the cache entries shown in the Administration - Audit Inspector tab. (Bug #29508773)
  • Backup files (.ibd) generated with the compression option enabled were not compressed (.ibz) after the operation finished. (Bug #29253624)
  • On Windows, SSH connections in combination with MySQL Enterprise Backup operations are available for use only when the server is local. (Bug #29215730)
  • The text for advanced options (Data Export from the Server menu) was modified to remove errors. (Bug #29024143, Bug #93508)
  • An incorrect password did not disable the Next button during the forward-engineering of a valid model, but then the next step generated an access-denied error while permitting the next action to continue after the error. Now, a valid password is required before the next step in the operation is available to select. (Bug #25951080, Bug #86064)
  • Regardless of the source objects selected (and displayed) during the migration operation, all objects were migrated if the steps of the wizard were repeated with the Next and Back buttons. (Bug #25121122, Bug #83876)

Using Navicat 9 normally. That works but it costly as well. At home I prefer MySQL workbench and I have to say that the GUI is a lot nicer. Stable and efficient. However my demands at home are not that high...

There's actually a small link on the same page labeled "No thanks, just start my download." Clicking this will take you directly to the download link without signing in to Oracle.

I would love this app if it didn’t crash 90%+ of the time I use it. I don’t know what oracle is trying to pull: Are they trying to make it suck so everyone moves to their platform? If so they are doing bang up job. But some of us hobbyists can’t afford Navicat to avoid the crappiness that in MySQL Workbench. I don’t know how someone could report this being stable. Just looking at the bug fix release notes tell you this is Beta level software at best. I just wasted about 30 minutes trying to setup a new connection that works in the command line just fine. MySQL itself is great, and the command line is do-able for me, but when designing complex Schema a Graphic view saves a lot of time, which is why I use it. However is is so flakey, I have to hit cmd-s while putting together schema and testing so often that I feel like I’m on OS 7.0! I usually don’t use such strong language but Workbench pisses me off, it’s a love-hate relationship where Workbench is the psycho-SO. One minute it's working great than the next you lose an hour of productivity.

I've had zero crashes with it. My only gripe is that it hijacks the text input control keys ctrl-a, ctrl-e, ctrl-h, ctrl-f, ctrl-b, etc.

Well, I am up to v5.2.37, and it is more stable now. However it still has problems saving connections which is very frustrating. BTW, v5.2.38 is out now yet MacUpdate still has 5.2.34? Erm… a small blip on an otherwise great site, heh.

No. The PPC platform is no longer officially supported by MySQL and all development for the platform has stopped.
