MySQL 5.6 Reference Manual  /  ...  /  The INFORMATION_SCHEMA INNODB_SYS_FIELDS Table

21.30.18 The INFORMATION_SCHEMA INNODB_SYS_FIELDS Table

The INNODB_SYS_FIELDS table provides metadata about the key columns (fields) of InnoDB indexes, equivalent to the information from the SYS_FIELDS table in the InnoDB data dictionary.

For related usage information and examples, see Section 14.15.3, “InnoDB INFORMATION_SCHEMA System Tables”.

The INNODB_SYS_FIELDS table has these columns:

  • INDEX_ID

    An identifier for the index associated with this key field; the same value as INNODB_SYS_INDEXES.INDEX_ID.

  • NAME

    The name of the original column from the table; the same value as INNODB_SYS_COLUMNS.NAME.

  • POS

    The ordinal position of the key field within the index, starting from 0 and incrementing sequentially. When a column is dropped, the remaining columns are reordered so that the sequence has no gaps.

Example

mysql> SELECT * FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.INNODB_SYS_FIELDS WHERE INDEX_ID = 117\G
*************************** 1. row ***************************
INDEX_ID: 117
    NAME: col1
     POS: 0
