WL#648: SHOW TABLE STATUS to show temporary tables
Affects: Server-7.1 — Status: Assigned — Priority: Medium
Currently temporary tables are invisible for SHOW TABLES, SHOW OPEN TABLES, SHOW TABLE STATUS, and within INFORMATION_SCHEMA. Also there is no way to see which tables are now hidden, replaced by temporary tables. This should be fixed by adding a new column 'Temporary' to the above results that should contain 1 for temporary tables and 0 otherwise. (Or 'YES'/'NO'.) Temporary tables for the user should be added to all results. This is in line with the fact that in 5.x we will allow one to do SHOW [column list] TABLE STATUS where temporary=1; SHOW COLUMNS FROM .. (or DESCRIBE) is another statement from which temporary tables are hidden. (This is BUG#12770.) Feature request: BUG#20001 Support for temp-tables in INFORMATION_SCHEMA
