    • Type: New Feature
    • Status: Closed (View Workflow)
    • Priority: Trivial
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: None

    • Environment:
      CentOS 7
      MariaDB-server 10.5.8_5-1

      Description

      When the 8000 byte varchar column limit is exceeded, the error message reads:

      MariaDB [test]> alter table products add column testchar varchar(2001) character set utf8mb4;
      ERROR 1815 (HY000): Internal error: CAL0001: Alter table Failed:  AlterTableProcessor::addColumn char, varchar and varbinary length may not exceed 8000
      

      If this could just specify the units like this:

      MariaDB [test]> alter table products add column testchar varchar(2001) character set utf8mb4;
      ERROR 1815 (HY000): Internal error: CAL0001: Alter table Failed:  AlterTableProcessor::addColumn char, varchar and varbinary length may not exceed 8000 bytes
      

      it would save a lot of confusion for users, as can be seen in the associated support case.
