RECREATE TRIGGER

Available in: DSQL

Added in: 2.0

Description

Creates or recreates a trigger. If a trigger with the same name already exists, RECREATE TRIGGER will try to drop it and create a new trigger. RECREATE TRIGGER will fail if the existing trigger is in use.

Syntax

Exactly the same as CREATE TRIGGER.

Restriction on recreating used triggers

Changed in: 2.0, 2.0.1

Description

In Firebird 2.0 only, a restriction is in place which prevents anyone from dropping, altering or recreating a trigger or stored procedure if it has been used since the database was opened. This restriction has been removed again in version 2.0.1.

Still, performing these operations on a live database is potentially risky and should only be done with the utmost care.
