Explore the New Feature of MySQL To Restrict Users From Creating a Table Without a Primary Key

As MySQL database administrators, we are well aware of the significance of implementing a primary key within a table. Throughout our careers, most of us have encountered situations where the absence of a primary key has led to operational challenges. Primary keys play an indispensable role in sound database design by uniquely identifying individual rows and significantly enhancing data retrieval, manipulation, and overall system performance.

From the MySQL documentation:

The PRIMARY KEY clause is a critical factor affecting the performance of MySQL queries and the space usage for tables and indexes. The primary key uniquely identifies a row in a table. Every row in the table should have a primary key value, and no two rows can have the same primary key value.

It is common for tables to be inadvertently created without a primary key, often leading to regrettable consequences that we only recognize when issues …

Restrict MySQL Connections to Broken Replica in ProxySQL

ProxySQL is a high-performance SQL proxy, which runs as a daemon watched by a monitoring process. The process monitors the daemon and restarts it in case of a crash to minimize downtime.

The daemon accepts incoming traffic from MySQL clients and forwards it to backend MySQL servers.

The proxy is designed to run continuously without needing to be restarted. Most configurations can be done at runtime using queries similar to SQL statements in the ProxySQL admin interface. These include runtime parameters, server grouping, and traffic-related settings.

Here, we will consider ProxySQL configured for async replication. Even when a replica is broken/stopped, ProxySQL still routes connections to replicas. It can be overcome by setting the appropriate value for mysql-monitor_slave_lag_when_null

Cut & Paste a User Creation Statement with MySQL 8

Sometimes it’s convenient to retrieve the user creation statement and to copy it to another server.

However, with the new authentication method used as default since MySQL 8.0, caching_sha2_password, this can become a nightmare as the output is binary and some bytes can be hidden or decoded differently depending of the terminal and font used.

Let’s have a look:

If we cut the create user statement and paste it into another server what will happen ?

We can see that we get the following error:

ERROR: 1827 (HY000): The password hash doesn't have the expected format.

How could we deal with that ?

The solution to be able to cut & paste the authentication string without having any issue, is to change it as a binary representation (hexadecimal) like this:

And then replace the value in the user create statement:

But there is an easier way. …

Where to find official MySQL container images ?

If you are deploying MySQL on containers, one of the first tasks is to find the right image.

For example, when people say I’m using the official docker image… what does that really mean?

Docker Hub, provides their official image (, but this is not the official MySQL image that we, the MySQL Team at Oracle, support.
