MySQL Convert Binlog Based Replication To GTID Replication Without Downtime

But still the replication is using Binlog file name and position for replicating the data. This is my slave status. You can see the GTID has ..

Check Constraints Issues

Earlier I wrote about check constraints when MySQL 8.0.16 was released. But this week I noticed two different folks having similar problems with them. And sadly it is 'pilot error'.The first was labeled  MYSQL 8.0.17 CHECK not working even though it has been implemented and a cursory glance may make one wonder what is going on with the database.The table is set up with two constraints.
