Get a list of Foreign Key constraints in MySQL

MySQLMySQLi Database

Let’s say we have a database “business” with number of tables. If you want to show only foreign key constraints, then use the following query −

mysql> select *
   −> from information_schema.referential_constraints
   −> where constraint_schema = 'business';

The following is the output displaying only foreign key constraints −
