Using the list type

This example uses the following table and index:

CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS cycling.upcoming_calendar (
  year int,
  month int,
  events list<text>,
  PRIMARY KEY (year, month)
CREATE CUSTOM INDEX events_idx ON cycling.upcoming_calendar (events) 
  USING 'StorageAttachedIndex';

An index is created on the list column events in the upcoming_calendar table.

Query with CONTAINS from the list events column:

SELECT * FROM cycling.upcoming_calendar 
  WHERE events CONTAINS 'Criterium du Dauphine';
WARNING: cqlsh was built against 5.0-beta1, but this server is 5.0.  All features may not work!

 year | month | events
 2015 |     6 | ['Tour de France', 'Criterium du Dauphine', 'Vuelta Ciclista a Venezuela']
