Juan Guzman: "MySQL Maestro seemed like an extremely useful, very robust software and very well designed too. Congratulations".
Torstein Krogh: "Some time ago, I tested all available tools on the market for maintaining MySQL and MySQL Maestro came up on top. My opinion is that MySQL should offer it as a free tool for all paying customers! They have nothing today, and doing MySQL DOS commands is not getting any new customers".

Setting profile options

To create a new profile, select databases to be registered by moving them from the Available databases list to the Selected databases list. This step is available if the Create a single profile option is unchecked on the previous wizard step.
 

 

You can select several databases to set options for all the selected databases at once (except the alias which should be unique for each individual database).

 

 

Login prompt before connection

Use the option to enable SQL Maestro for MySQL to prompt for user name and password every time you connect to the database.

 

Show system objects

Check the box to make system objects visible.

 

Keep connection alive

Check the box for pinging server before each query execution.

 

Connect at startup

With this option on connection to the profile database is automatically established at the application startup.

 

New objects' names (Don't change case, Convert to upper case, Convert to lower case)

The option allows you to specify the newly created objects case.

 

Refresh whole database on connect

Use the option along with the Show empty schemas explorer options to hide/show empty schemas in the explorer tree.

 

Profile text color

Select the color to be used to represent the database profile name at the Explorer tree. For example this option may be useful to mark development and production databases in different colors in order to prevent casual metadata or data changes in the production.

 

Default table engine (MyISAM, InnoDB)

Use the drop-down list to specify the storage engine to be the default engine for the database tables.

MyISAM manages non-transactional tables. It provides high-speed storage and retrieval, as well as fulltext searching capabilities.

The InnoDB storage engine provides transaction-safe tables.

 

Click the Ready button when done to start working with the selected databases in SQL Maestro for MySQL.
