WL#9530: InnoDB_New_DD: FTS index support for newDD
Affects: Server-8.0 — Status: Complete — Priority: Medium
The unique aspect of supporting FTS index for newDD is related to the "hidden aux index tables". These tables are created by "create fulltext index" operation, and will be deleted along with "drop index". While these aux tables are normally "hidden" from user, they will have their own entries in DD system tables. And in the future, they could be "selectable" so the index content can be dumped for diagnostic or other purposes (and also replace the information_schema.innodb_ft_* tables).
1) Create fulltext index can be successfully performed, and all existing FTS tests would pass. 2) Other DDLs, including drop index, alter table with fulltext index could be performed successfully 3) Select for information_schema.innodb_ft_* would still be successfully performed.
The key work for this WL is to create the aux table during create fulltext index time. It should use the same DD API methods which SQL-layer uses to create such tables' DD objects, and reflect back to server layer. Create DD table space object as needed. If the parent table uses shared table space, the aux tables should use the same shared table space; If it uses standalone table space, the aux tables should standalone table space. Change fts aux table name to lower-case. e.g. FTS_00000000000000da_BEING_DELETED to fts_00000000000000da_being_deleted. Because when lower_case_table_names is set to 2, the key in server table cache is based on lower-case name.
1. Create fts index table object innobase_fts_create_one_index_dd_table() Note: Acquire MDL lock on fts common table. 2. Create fts common table object innobase_fts_create_one_common_dd_table() Note: Acquire MDL lock on fts common table. 3. Create table space object if needed. innobase_get_dd_tablespace_id() 4. Drop fts dd table object innobase_fts_drop_dd_table() Note: Acquire MDL lock on fts common table. 5. Rename fts dd table object innobase_fts_rename_dd_table() Note: only needed for database change. 6. Avoid re-enter dict_sys->mutex and re-acquire dict_operation_lock Comment row_mysql_freeze_data_dictionary() and row_mysql_unfreeze_data_dictionary() in row_upd_index_is_referenced(), row_upd_check_references_constraints(), and row_upd_check_references_constraints().
