MySQL Replication  /  ...  /  Adding GTID-Based Masters to a Multi-Source Replication Slave

2.4.3 Adding GTID-Based Masters to a Multi-Source Replication Slave

These steps assume you have enabled GTIDs for transactions on the masters using gtid_mode=ON, created a replication user, ensured that the slave is using TABLE based replication repositories, and provisioned the slave with data from the masters if appropriate.

Use the CHANGE MASTER TO statement to configure a replication channel for each master on the replication slave (see Section 5.3, “Replication Channels”). The FOR CHANNEL clause is used to specify the channel. For GTID-based replication, GTID auto-positioning is used to synchronize with the master (see Section 2.3.3, “GTID Auto-Positioning”). The MASTER_AUTO_POSITION option is set to specify the use of auto-positioning.

For example, to add master1 and master2 as masters to the replication slave, use the mysql client to issue the CHANGE MASTER TO statement twice on the slave, like this:

mysql> CHANGE MASTER TO MASTER_HOST="master1", MASTER_USER="ted", \
MASTER_PASSWORD="password", MASTER_AUTO_POSITION=1 FOR CHANNEL "master_1";
mysql> CHANGE MASTER TO MASTER_HOST="master2", MASTER_USER="ted", \
MASTER_PASSWORD="password", MASTER_AUTO_POSITION=1 FOR CHANNEL "master_2";

For the full syntax of the CHANGE MASTER TO statement and other available options, see CHANGE MASTER TO Syntax.

To make the replication slave replicate only database db1 from master1, and only database db2 from master2, use the mysql client to issue the CHANGE REPLICATION FILTER statement for each channel, like this:

mysql> CHANGE REPLICATION FILTER REPLICATE_WILD_DO_TABLE = ('db1.%') FOR CHANNEL "master_1";
mysql> CHANGE REPLICATION FILTER REPLICATE_WILD_DO_TABLE = ('db2.%') FOR CHANNEL "master_2";

For the full syntax of the CHANGE REPLICATION FILTER statement and other available options, see CHANGE REPLICATION FILTER Syntax.
