How to find all the relations between all MySQL tables? If for example, I want to know the relation of tables in a database of having around 100 tables.

Is there anyway to know this?


The better way, programmatically speaking, is gathering data from INFORMATION_SCHEMA.KEY_COLUMN_USAGE table as follows:

SELECT
  `TABLE_SCHEMA`,                          -- Foreign key schema
  `TABLE_NAME`,                            -- Foreign key table
  `COLUMN_NAME`,                           -- Foreign key column
  `REFERENCED_TABLE_SCHEMA`,               -- Origin key schema
  `REFERENCED_TABLE_NAME`,                 -- Origin key table
  `REFERENCED_COLUMN_NAME`                 -- Origin key column
FROM
  `INFORMATION_SCHEMA`.`KEY_COLUMN_USAGE`  -- Will fail if user don't have privilege
WHERE
  `TABLE_SCHEMA` = SCHEMA()                -- Detect current schema in USE
  AND `REFERENCED_TABLE_NAME` IS NOT NULL; -- Only tables with foreign keys

There are more columns info like ORDINAL_POSITION that could be useful depending your purpose.
