Creating a database event

Events allow you to automate routine tasks. You can create scheduled events, system events, and manual events.


You must have either the MANAGE ANY EVENT or CREATE ANY OBJECT system privilege.

Contexte et remarques

If you are developing event handlers, you can add schedules or system events to control the triggering of an event later, either using Sybase Central or the ALTER EVENT statement.

If you create an event handler without a schedule or system event to trigger it, it is executed only when manually triggered.

  1. Use the SQL Anywhere 16 plug-in to connect to the database.

  2. In the left pane, right-click Events and click New » Event.

  3. Follow the instructions in the Create Event Wizard.


The event is added to the database.
