It is possible to set default value on DATE (NOT DATETIME) column in MySQL 5.7 to current date?
I try this (generated by Workbench):
ALTER TABLE `db`.`table` CHANGE COLUMN `column` `column` DATE NOT NULL DEFAULT CURDATE() ;
No, you cannot. The documentation is pretty clear on this:
This means, for example, that you cannot set the default for a date column to be the value of a function such as NOW() or CURRENT_DATE. The exception is that you can specify CURRENT_TIMESTAMP as the default for TIMESTAMP and DATETIME columns. See Section 12.3.5, “Automatic Initialization and Updating for TIMESTAMP and DATETIME”.
You can do one of the following:
DATETIME. Create view that extracts the date as a separate column.
