MySQL 8.0.16 and higher includes a
plugin that modifies
statements received by the server before it parses and executes
them. The plugin removes
DATA DIRECTORY, and
DIRECTORY clauses, which may be helpful when restoring
tables from SQL dump files created from databases that are
encrypted or that have their tables stored outside the data
directory. For example, the plugin may enable restoring such dump
files into an unencrypted instance or in an environment where the
paths outside the data directory are not accessible.
Before using the
ddl_rewriter plugin, install
it according to the instructions provided in
Section 18.104.22.168, “Installing or Uninstalling ddl_rewriter”.
ddl_rewriter examines SQL statements received
by the server prior to parsing, rewriting them according to these
CREATE TABLEstatements, and only if they are standalone statements that occur at the beginning of an input line or at the beginning of prepared statement text.
ddl_rewriterdoes not consider
CREATE TABLEstatements within stored program definitions. Statements can extend over multiple lines.
Within statements considered for rewrite, instances of the following clauses are rewritten and each instance replaced by a single space:
DATA DIRECTORY(at the table and partition levels)
INDEX DIRECTORY(at the table and partition levels)
Rewriting does not depend on lettercase.
ddl_rewriter rewrites a statement, it
generates a warning:
mysql> CREATE TABLE t (i INT) DATA DIRECTORY '/var/mysql/data'; Query OK, 0 rows affected, 1 warning (0.03 sec) mysql> SHOW WARNINGS\G *************************** 1. row *************************** Level: Note Code: 1105 Message: Query 'CREATE TABLE t (i INT) DATA DIRECTORY '/var/mysql/data'' rewritten to 'CREATE TABLE t (i INT) ' by a query rewrite plugin 1 row in set (0.00 sec)
If the general query log or binary log is enabled, the server
writes to it statements as they appear after any rewriting by
ddl_rewriter exposes the
instrument for tracking plugin memory use. See
Section 22.214.171.124, “Memory Summary Tables”
