CONVERT PARTITION: move out partition into a table

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

      Description

      Moving a table out from a partitioned table is new quite cumbersome:
      ('archive' is here a partitioned table and 'p1' is a normal table)

      CREATE TABLE tp1 LIKE archive;
      ALTER TABLE tp1 REMOVE PARTITIONING;
      ALTER TABLE archive EXCHANGE PARTITION p1 WITH TABLE tp1;
      ALTER TABLE archive DROP PARTITION p1;

      Instead one should be able to do:

      ALTER TABLE archive CONVERT PARTITION p1 TO TABLE tp1;

      The operation crash safety must be protected by DDL logging.
