MySQL 8.0 Reference Manual  /  ...  /  The extract_schema_from_file_name() Function

27.4.5.1 The extract_schema_from_file_name() Function

Given a file path name, returns the path component that represents the schema name. This function assumes that the file name lies within the schema directory. For this reason, it will not work with partitions or tables defined using their own DATA_DIRECTORY table option.

This function is useful when extracting file I/O information from the Performance Schema that includes file path names. It provides a convenient way to display schema names, which can be more easily understood than full path names, and can be used in joins against object schema names.

Parameters
  • path VARCHAR(512): The full path to a data file from which to extract the schema name.

Return Value

A VARCHAR(64) value.

Example
mysql> SELECT sys.extract_schema_from_file_name('/usr/local/mysql/data/world/City.ibd');
