Add column to existing table


It is achievable with command ALTER TABLE t ADD COLUMN c TEXT in mysql but not in mapd. Now ALTER TABLE DDL has very limited functionality as described in the document . Will it be supported in the future?


Yup, sensible roadmap item, we have plenty of motivation to allow adding and populating a column to an existing table, and dropping a column.


Hi @on99, just wanted to let you know that ALTER TABLE ADD COLUMN just landed in 4.1, which you can find the release notes for here.
