Unable to export database with the MySQL Workbench 6.1.4 in either Dump Project or Self-Contained.  

Export fails with "mysqldump: [ERROR] unknown variable 'delayed-insert=FALSE'"

Target DB is 5.7.3-m13 InnoDB

How to repeat:
Attempt to export a database with the MySQL Workbench.

Suggested fix:
Remove the delayed-insert parameter if it is no longer supported in databases 5.6 and above.

Do you have something configured in Preferences -> Administration -> Path to mysqldump Tool?

I have the same problem running 5.7.3, Workbench  There are no options specified in Preferences/Admin/Path to mysqldump tool:

I see the same behavior on OS X with Workbench 6.1.6 and 6.1.7, using MySQL 5.7.4.

Thank you for the feedback.
Verified as described on 6.1.7

Running: D:\ushastry\mysql-advanced-5.7.5-m15-winx64\bin\mysqldump.exe --defaults-file="c:\users\ushastry\appdata\local\temp\tmp_qse1g.cnf"  --max_allowed_packet=1G --delayed-insert=TRUE --host= --user=ushastry --port=3307 --default-character-set=utf8 --skip-triggers  --no-data  --no-create-db --no-create-info --routines --events "test"
mysqldump: [ERROR] unknown variable 'delayed-insert=TRUE'

Operation failed with exitcode 7

The error occurs when the mysqldump location is configured to point to the version of mysqldump in MySQL 5.7.5.

When the mysqldump location is left as the default, the dump will continue, but warned about the version mismatch:


mysqldump Version Mismatch

/Applications/MySQLWorkbench.app/Contents/MacOS/mysqldump is version 5.6.17, but the MySQL Server to be dumped has version 5.7.5-m15.
Because the version of mysqldump is older than the server, some features may not be backed up properly.
It is recommended you upgrade your local MySQL client programs, including mysqldump to a version equal to or newer than that of the target server.
The path to the dump tool must then be set in Preferences -> Administrator -> Path to mysqldump Tool:

Fixed as of the upcoming MySQL Workbench 6.2.2 release, and here's the changelog entry:

When exporting a database, MySQL Workbench now checks and notifies the user
when the bundled or configured "mysqldump" is older than the target MySQL
version, and prompts the user to set "Path to mysqldump Tool" in
MySQL Workbench to the appropriate version.

Thank you for the bug report.

i run workbench 6.3.5 build 201 CE 32bit on a 64bit windows 7 pro german and experienve the same problem as described here. 

The "export" of a database that is run on a remote linux SLES 11.sp3 mysql database (as it comes with SLES 11 sp3) failes with

how or where to remove that "--delayed-insert=FALSE" parameter from the dump ?

Exactly the same trouble in the same conditions than Axel Werner reported [23 Oct 9:55]:

- workbench 6.3.5 build 201 CE (64 bits) Community on Windows 10

I tried again after having changed the settings in "Edit > Preferences > Modeling > MySQL" field "Default target MySQL Version" from 5.6 to 5.7, with no result.

This is an ANCIENT Problem THAT STILL IS NOT SOLVED in 6.3!

Why NOT ??????

I did a clean install of everything and this error comes up.

Dearest Mysql Workbench  programmer if this is deprecated just ignore the setting. That shouldn't be to difficult would it?

It makes MYSQL useless for developers like me.

This is still a problem with 6.3.5 build 201 CE (64 bits) yes it does say bits

I've had to apply the StackOverflow fix previously mentioned in order to resolve this issue.

It appears this bug is getting mixed with a related bug (see duplicates for details) but it appears the bug behind most of the recent comments was fixed in Workbench 6.3.6.
