This error occurs when the DEFINER clause of a stored routine is not in the correct format. It is a MySQL 1446 error and the literal message is "Malformed DEFINER clause".

How It Affects Your App

MySQL 1446 ER_MALFORMED_DEFINER error occurs when the definer of a stored routine is not valid. This error can prevent the application from executing the stored routine, resulting in an application failure. It can also lead to unexpected results if the stored routine is executed with the wrong definer. This can cause data integrity issues and security risks. Therefore, it is important to ensure that the definer of the stored routine is valid and correct.

How To Fix

1. Check the syntax of the query:SELECT * FROM table_name WHERE column_name = 'value';
2. Check the data type of the column:SHOW COLUMNS FROM table_name WHERE Field = 'column_name';
3. Check the value of the column:SELECT column_name FROM table_name;
4. Check the character set of the column:SHOW FULL COLUMNS FROM table_name WHERE Field = 'column_name';
5. Change the character set of the column if necessary:ALTER TABLE table_name MODIFY column_name VARCHAR(255) CHARACTER SET utf8;
