After making changes to the model with table triggers, synchronization fails with error message:

Executing SQL script in server
ERROR: Error 2014: Commands out of sync; you can't run this command now
SQL Code:
        USE `talibro`
SQL script execution finished: statements: 273 succeeded, 1 failed

If I Skip synchronization of triggers synchronization goes through fine.
Also, when I store the synchronization SQL into a file and send it using the command line, it also goes through fine.

How to repeat:
Create a model with table triggers and Choose from the meny "Database -> Synchronize Model". IN the options dialogue make sure nothing is skipped.

Thank you for the bug report. I am not able to repeat with my small own model, are you able to provide a test case model?. Thanks.

I found the culprit responsible: this is due to C-style comments in my triggers ( /* and */ ). 

When I remove all C-style comments MySQL Workbench can synchronize successfully!

Since trigger codes I'm synchronizing is quite large (few thousand lines) I'm trimming it down right now to the very comment causing this behavior. I'll revert back in few minutes with an SQL script.

Note, that the same script which is causing Error 2014 in Workbench can be sent to /usr/bin/mysql client successfully! So the problem is in the client which is bundled with Mysql Workbench.

I tried to set mysql client through Edit->Preferences->Administrator section to /usr/bin/mysql to no avail. 

Version of mysql client: 14.14 Distrib 5.6.24, for Linux (x86_64) using  EditLine wrapper

The behavior is also consistent in

if delimiter "//" is follows a C-style comment synchronization fails in MySQL Workbench

Phew.... I'm telling you!!

Check out the alter.sql script. If you move the comment "this is the comment" after "//", it synchronizes fine. Otherwise it throws the following error:

Executing SQL script in server
ERROR: Error 2014: Commands out of sync; you can't run this command now
SQL Code:
        DROP TRIGGER IF EXISTS `talibro`.`invoice_BEFORE_DELETE` 

The workaround is: to write all comments inside or above trigger content, NEVER after the trigger.

I also confirm this is not just about C-style comments. Behavior is persistent with  line-comments in the same position ("--").

Since there is a simple workaround perhaps Severity of this bug should be "S3", but this is such a lame bug (honestly, though!) and I spent hours to chase the sucker I left it at S2.

Thank you for the feedback. I couldn't repeat with 6.3.4 if you still get the issue please provide a model file project test case. Thanks.

Hi Miguel,

I'm attaching you the sakilla_full.mwb file where this behavior is persistent. First I Forward  Engineered the model in my local database (Ver 14.14 Distrib 5.6.26, for Linux (x86_64) using  EditLine wrapper). Then I performed synchronize. 

I also discovered another workaround while attemping to duplciate this behavior: just remove ";" from the last END. So make sure, BEGIN/END block doesn't end with a ";".

Thank you for the model file.

Posted by developer:
Fixed as of the upcoming MySQL Workbench 8.0.11 release, and here's the changelog entry:

Models synchronized with existing databases produced an error message if
any of the tables within a model had comments enclosed between /* and */
characters in triggers.

Thank you for the bug report.
