My table looks like
create table try ( name varchar(8), CREATED_BY varchar(40) not null);
and then I have a trigger to auto populate the CREATED_BY field
create trigger autoPopulateAtInsert BEFORE INSERT on try for each row set new.CREATED_BY=user();
When I do an insert using
insert into try (name) values ('abc');
the entry is made in the table but I still get the error message
Field 'CREATED_BY' doesn't have a default value Error no 1364
Is there a way to suppress this error without making the field nullable AND without removing the triggfer? Otherwise my hibernate will see these exceptions ( even though the insertions have been made) and then application will crash.
Set a default value for
Created_By (eg: empty
VARCHAR) and the trigger will update the value anyways.
create table try ( name varchar(8), CREATED_BY varchar(40) DEFAULT '' not null );
