Trigger UUID result is same value for every row, not unique for each


Recommended Posts

I have a trigger, 


Now, I thought this would fire FOR EACH ROW, but if I'm doing an insert like this...
insert into sometable ( col1, col2 )
( select col1, col2 from SOME_OTHER_tABLE )
... and that inserts two rows, the result is that Uid in both new rows is identical. This is not the desired behavior. Can you tell me how to get a unique Uid in each row?

Not on my system.


Are you sure that the values are in fact identical, not just similar? You realize that the old UUIDs used by MySQL are mostly deterministic and will only differ in some parts, right? And how does your table even accept identical values? An ID column should be the primary key or at least unique.
