#399 ✓duplicate


Reported by jnsears | June 12th, 2008 @ 09:56 AM

This patch allows the use of specified key lengths when using add_index in a migration with mysql

# creates index with both key lengths equal to 8
add_index("people", ["memo", "name"], :key_length => 8)

# creates index with only memo key length set to 8
add_index("people", ["memo", "name"], :key_length => {"memo" => 8})

    The patch needs to test for generated sql as well.
