Function signature

Reports signature issues for built-in functions.

The inspection will report a wrong number of arguments, invalid keywords, wrong data types, and other issues.

Example (MySQL):

CREATE TABLE foo (a INT, b INT, c INT) SELECT IFNULL() FROM foo; -- error SELECT IFNULL(a) FROM foo; -- error SELECT IFNULL(a, b) FROM foo; -- OK SELECT IFNULL(a, b, c) FROM foo; -- error

In MySQL, the IFNULL() function accepts strictly two arguments. So, only the SELECT IFNULL(a, b) FROM foo; query is correct.

Locating this inspection


Can be used to locate inspection in e.g. Qodana configuration files, where you can quickly enable or disable it, or adjust its settings.

Via Settings dialog

Path to the inspection settings via IntelliJ Platform IDE Settings dialog, when you need to adjust inspection settings directly from your IDE.
