Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-10411) Add/drop multiple columns in one ALTER TABLE statement
Date Tue, 29 Sep 2015 13:36:04 GMT
Bryn Cooke created CASSANDRA-10411:

             Summary: Add/drop multiple columns in one ALTER TABLE statement
                 Key: CASSANDRA-10411
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Bryn Cooke

Currently it is only possible to add one column at a time in an alter table statement. It
would be great if we could add multiple columns at a time.

The primary reason for this is that adding each column individually seems to take a significant
amount of time (at least on my development machine), I know all the columns I want to add,
but don't know them until after the initial table is created.

As a secondary consideration it brings CQL slightly closer to SQL where most databases can
handle adding multiple columns in one statement.
