Proposal: Find/ replace across multiple procedures/ functions

LutzT's profile image LutzT posted 6 years ago in Feature discussion Permalink

Hello Ansgar, IMHO it would be very helpful to have an option to search (and replace?) text across all procedures/ functions of current database (especially if you write a bunch of MySQL procedures/ functions to do in database processing and you have to rename tables or something like that). I know this could be dangerous... Therefore, this should be an extra option in the find and replace dialogue which should be switched off by default. Best regards, Lutz

Agree, a very dangerous feature :)

Wouldn't it be the easiest way to export your procedures and functions into an .sql file, then use a text editor to change what you want, then reimport that file again into an empty database?

Exporting and importing works - but it's quite a bit laborious :-/ "Bazaar trading": How about implementing only the find functionality? ;-) L.

The "Find text on server" dialog has support for procedures and functions since recently. Only in MySQL mode yet.
