WL#5781: DEFAULT/catch-all partition for LIST partitioning
Affects: Server-9.x — Status: Un-Assigned — Priority: Medium
Add DEFAULT partition for LIST partitioning (like MAXVALUE for RANGE partitioning) as a catch-all partition for rows not covered in any other partition. CREATE TABLE t (a INT, b TEXT) PARTITION BY LIST (a) (PARTITION p0 VALUES IN (1,5,6,7), PARTITION p1 VALUES IN (3,4,9), PARTITION pDefault VALUES IN (DEFAULT)); When using a DEFAULT partition, it will not longer be possible to ADD a partition, but one must instead REORGANIZE the DEFAULT partition, just like MAXVALUE partition in RANGE partitioning. See BUG#50566.
