DDL statements that differ for ColumnStore

In most cases, a ColumnStore table works just as any other MariaDB table. There are however a few differences.

The following table lists the data definition statements (DDL) that differ from normal MariaDB DDL when used on ColumnStore tables.

DROP TABLEColumnstore supports DROP TABLE ...RESTRICT which only drops the table in the front end.
RENAME TABLEColumnStore doesn't allow one to rename a table between databases.
CREATE TABLEColumnStore doesn't need indexes, partitions and many other table and column options. See here for ColumnStore Specific Syntax
CREATE INDEXColumnStore doesn't need indexes. Hence an index many not be created on a table that is defined with engine=columnstore
