WL#12959: Contribution by Facebook: Added optional commenting of the @@GLOBAL.GTID_PURGED by dump
Affects: Server-8.0 — Status: Complete
Background innformation : Added a new allowed value for --set-gtid-purged command line argument for mysqldump. --set-gtid-purged=COMMENTED will output the SET @GLOBAL.GTID_PURGED information in a comment. Also, changed the logic of extracting the GTIDS. They are now extracted from the results of START TRANSACTION. Use case: This change allows us to record the gtid_purged values as a comment into the dump file and allows replay of the file without executing the set gtid_purged line. The recorded dump files can have different applications for us and our dump files typically consists of a single database. When we migrate data from one physical server to another server (completely different gtid sets) that already contain other active databases, we would restore the dump files, but we also want the purged value without risking the restore process execute "set gtid_purged" variable. The value of gtid_purged is still available within the dump file for our automation to retrieve and make certain decisions on. Thus is a contribution by Facebook, see BUG#94332
FR1: the --set-gtid-purged mysqldump option will take a new value called COMMENTED FR2: when COMMENTED is supplied it will output the SET @GLOBAL.GTID_PURGED command as it does now (for ON/AUTO), but in an unconditional comment. NF3: only the mysqldump tool will be affected.
