I have to write insert query for Magento 2 cms_block table, for ex:- cms_block table, what should i write for the column created_in , updated_in , creation_time , update_time

row_id  block_id  created_in  updated_in   title   identifier   content   
  254      254        1       2147483647  Designer  designer  "<p><span></span></p>"    

creation_time          update_time          is_active
2018-08-21 00:21:47   2018-09-18 01:00:07       1

These are the entries which are already there in cms_block, I have to create a msyql script insert queries so that i can run it on mysql console. What does created_in = 1 mean? similarly what is updated_in= 2147483647 mean looking at their data types they are bigint(20) unsigned. for creation_time and update_time i will use timestamp, but what to use for created_in and updated_in in my sql query.

And if there is another approach to achieve that, I looked on this link:- Magento 2: How to insert data into custom table in model file?

But my requirement is to run insert query on the MySQL terminal for Magento 2, and for that, I don't the meaning of two columns created_in, updated_in and if that's epoc time then how to do that in MySQL query


ERROR 1452 (23000): Cannot add or update a child row: a foreign key constraint fails (`webster`.`cms_block`, CONSTRAINT `CMS_BLOCK_BLOCK_ID_SEQUENCE_CMS_BLOCK_SEQUENCE_VALUE` FOREIGN KEY (`block_id`) REFERENCES `sequence_cms_block` (`sequence_value`) ON DELETE CASCADE)

created_in and updated_in are used for scheduled updates (EE-only feature)


creation_time and update_time have a default value (which is the current time) that will be set by mysql if you don't provide anything specific.

  • it gives me error in block_id column, ERROR 1364 (HY000): Field 'block_id' doesn't have a default value, row_id and block_id 'id' are same, how can i know what value to insert in block_id
