What is foreign key in MySQL?

A foreign key is a reference to a primary key in another table or the table itself. It is used for what is called referential integrity. It can be a field (or a set of fields) in a table that uniquely identifies a row of another table. The table in which the foreign key is defined is called the “child table” and it (often) refers to the primary key in the parent table
