The forum will experience an outage sometime between February 10 at 7:00pm EST and February 12 at 11:59 EST for installation of security updates. The actual time and duration of the outage are unknown but attempts will be made to minimize the downtime. We apologize for any inconvenience.

When a stored procedure runs a DROP CONNECTION against the connection currently in use by an event, the following message appears in the console log:

User "DBA" dropped event connection 1000001154 ("victim-event-name")

In some (most) environments, that may be important, but in others (mine) these messages are just annoying... the DROPs are frequently and automatically executed under the covers as part of business-as-usual.

Suggestion: allow these messages to be suppressed on a case-by-case basis; e.g., add a clause to the CREATE EVENT statement, or a clause to the event's EXCEPTION block, or something coded at the victim-event level to say "don't fret if my connection is dropped".

This issue sounds related to your other recent posting related to events - Do not display “Statement interrupted by user” event exceptions when database is shutting down - and perhaps the solution to that issue can also resolve this request as well?

... with "perhaps" being the operative word. From my perspective the contexts are vastly different: database shutdown coming from the outside world, versus DROP CONNECTION done from within another connection as part of normal operations (no shutdown). Other than that, yeah sure :)
