Truncated Comments in Database Synchronization MySQL Script
Posted by: Eric Villhauer

I am attempting to synchronize an existing database schema from a schema model that I've updated using an EER diagram in MySQL Workbench. When workbench generates a MySQL script for the synchronization it truncates comments on added or changed columns in the ALTER TABLE statement, resulting in a syntax error (1064) when I execute the script. Examples of the truncated comments are shown below.

Is there a way to configure Workbench so that it will not truncate column comments when generating a MySQL script for pushing schema updates from a schema model to an existing database schema?

I'm using Workbench 8.0 CE with Windows 10, and this issue is persistent and repeatable when generating scripts for MySQL version 5.6.84, and 8.0.13.

CHANGE COLUMN `existing_column` `existing_column` INT(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT COMMENT /* comment truncated */ /*PK for vendor has services table.*/ ,

ADD COLUMN `new_column` INT(11) NOT NULL COMMENT /* comment truncated */ /*States PK. Referenced from "states" table.*/ AFTER `zip_codes_zip_codes_id`,
