drop index during the time we clone a MySQL table.

Dear all,

Any way to drop the index during the time we clone a table by :


CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS Table B LIKE Table A

Open in new window


which B will copy everything from A when this command execute and not need extra AFTER script manual method?

This isn't possible. This is what the LIKE option does according to documentation:
Use LIKE to create an empty table based on the definition of another table, including any column attributes and indexes defined in the original table:
You will have to follow-up with subsequent commends (as already provided) to remove any auto-increments and primary key.

manually? that is up to you.

what you cannot do is expect there to be some magic parameter to

             create table audit.x like source. x with magic drop unwanted bits

that magic you have to provide, which "might" be scripted - but again that is up to you.

String the queries together:

CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS TableB LIKE TableA; ALTER TABLE TableB DROP yourColumn;

Open in new window

If it's just the INDEX you want to drop and not the Column:

DROP INDEX `PRIMARY` ON TableB;

Open in new window

ChrisStanyon,

This means this logic is not automated, I can't use dynamic SQL for it, build a lot recently and see if anything we can check from schema level and, if index found, constraint is found, drop it.

If this is the table structure:

CREATE TABLE `YYYY` (
  `SCHED_NAME` varchar(120) NOT NULL,
  `TRIGGER_NAME` varchar(200) NOT NULL,
  `TRIGGER_GROUP` varchar(200) NOT NULL,
  `CRON_EXPRESSION` varchar(120) NOT NULL,
  `TIME_ZONE_ID` varchar(80) DEFAULT NULL,
  PRIMARY KEY (`SCHED_NAME`,`TRIGGER_NAME`,`TRIGGER_GROUP`),
  KEY `SCHED_NAME` (`SCHED_NAME`,`TRIGGER_NAME`,`TRIGGER_GROUP`),
  CONSTRAINT `QRTZ_CRON_TRIGGERS_ibfk_1` FOREIGN KEY (`SCHED_NAME`, `TRIGGER_NAME`, `TRIGGER_GROUP`) REFERENCES `QRTZ_TRIGGERS` (`SCHED_NAME`, `TRIGGER_NAME`, `TRIGGER_GROUP`)
) ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8;

Open in new window


Then after I clone the table using "like", the just issue:

DROP INDEX `PRIMARY` ON YYYY; 

Open in new window


I read this :
stackoverflow.com/questions/3798524/mysql-dropping-all-indexes-from-table?s=ca15d66a-5c5f-459f-80f5-58430b24626e#new-answer

can the SHOW INDEX FROM <table thing> plugable to the cursor and let we loop that one by one ?
