DBAL Unique Key containing more than 3 columns not working
I tried to define ext_tables.sql structure and a table that has unique-key consisting of multiple fields.
This is working as expected with max. 3 fields added:
UNIQUE unique_asset (parent_table, parent_id, parent_field)
I required to add another one - which fails after testing sql-inserts
UNIQUE unique_asset (parent_table, parent_id, parent_field,parent_field_index)
TYPO3 Install-Tool reports to successfully create database-structure. After a while I noticed that I got SQL-Exceptions like this for duplicate-entries:
Duplicate entry 'tx_mytablename_domain_model_pro-114-instructions' for key 'unique_asset'
I noticed the last index-field obviously is missing there! It should have been a numeric index.
In PhpMyAdmin I've noticed the recent added index-field 'parent_field_index' is really missing/not created at all!
I've deleted and recreated the index manually on phpmyadmin and it works:
ALTER TABLE `tx_mytablename_domain_model_pro` ADD UNIQUE unique_asset (parent_table, parent_id, parent_field,parent_field_inde);
So it looks like there somewhere is a hard-coded limit either in TYPO-Core or in Doctrine/DBAL? I would at least have expected TYPO3-Install tool to throw a hint on this, but it's completly ignoring the 4th index-field and reporting success everywhere - except on duplicate-entries raising SQL-Exception obviously.
