MariaDB starting with 10.2

The NTILE() function was first introduced with window functions in MariaDB 10.2.0.

Syntax

NTILE (expr) OVER ( 
  [ PARTITION BY partition_expression ] 
  [ ORDER BY order_list ]
)

Description

NTILE() is a window function that returns an integer indicating which group a given row falls into. The number of groups is specified in the argument (expr), starting at one. Ordered rows in the partition are divided into the specified number of groups with as equal a size as possible.

Examples

create table t1 (
    pk int primary key,
    a int,
    b int
  );

insert into t1 values
    (11 , 0, 10),
    (12 , 0, 10),
    (13 , 1, 10),
    (14 , 1, 10),
    (18 , 2, 10),
    (15 , 2, 20),
    (16 , 2, 20),
    (17 , 2, 20),
    (19 , 4, 20),
    (20 , 4, 20);

select pk, a, b,
    ntile(1) over (order by pk)
  from t1;
