Alter SAI index

SAI indexes cannot be altered. If you need to modify an SAI index, you will need to drop the current index, create a new index, and rebuild the cycling.


  • Keyspace created

  • Table created

  • SAI index created

    1. Drop indexes.

      DROP INDEX IF EXISTS cycling.lastname_idx;
      DROP INDEX IF EXISTS cycling.age_idx;
      DROP INDEX IF EXISTS cycling.country_idx;
      DROP INDEX IF EXISTS cycling.registration_idx;

      # LLP: next block is printing twice, can’t figure out why

    2. Create new indexes.

      CREATE CUSTOM INDEX lastname_idx ON cycling.cyclist_semi_pro (lastname) 
        USING 'StorageAttachedIndex' 
        WITH OPTIONS = {'case_sensitive': 'false', 'normalize': 'true', 'ascii': 'true'}; 
      CREATE CUSTOM INDEX age_idx ON cycling.cyclist_semi_pro (age) 
        USING 'StorageAttachedIndex'; 
      CREATE CUSTOM INDEX country_idx ON cycling.cyclist_semi_pro (country) 
        USING 'StorageAttachedIndex' 
        WITH OPTIONS = {'case_sensitive': 'false', 'normalize': 'true', 'ascii': 'true'}; 
      CREATE CUSTOM INDEX registration_idx ON cycling.cyclist_semi_pro (registration) 
        USING 'StorageAttachedIndex';
