Infer Schema at a Glance

You usually need to create a table before loading data from a file stored on a stage or somewhere. Unfortunately, sometimes you might not know the file schema to create the table or are unable to input the schema due to its complexity.

Introducing the capability to infer schema from an existing file will make the work much easier. You will even be able to query data directly from a stage using a SELECT statement like select * from @my_stage.

INFER 's3://mybucket/data.csv' FILE_FORMAT = ( TYPE = CSV );
| CONTINENT   | TEXT    | True     |
| COUNTRY     | VARIANT | True     |

We've added support for inferring the basic schema from parquet files in #9043, and we're now working on #7211 to implement select from @stage.

Add Tls Support for Mysql Handler

opensrv-mysql v0.3.0 that was released recently includes support for TLS. It sounds like a good idea to introduce it to Databend.

let (is_ssl, init_params) = opensrv_mysql::AsyncMysqlIntermediary::init_before_ssl(
    &mut shim,
    &mut r,
    &mut w,

opensrv_mysql::secure_run_with_options(shim, w, ops, tls_config, init_params).await
