doctl databases sql-mode set <database-cluster-id> <sql-mode-1> ... <sql-mode-n> [flags]




This command configures the SQL modes for the specified MySQL database cluster. The SQL modes should be provided as a space separated list.

This command replaces the existing SQL mode configuration completely. Include all of the current values when adding a new one.


The following example sets the SQL mode ALLOW_INVALID_DATES for an existing database cluster with the ID ca9f591d-f38h-5555-a0ef-1c02d1d1e35. The cluster already has the modes NO_ZERO_DATE, NO_ZERO_IN_DATE, STRICT_ALL_TABLES set, but they must be included in the command to avoid being overwritten by the additional mode:

doctl databases sql-mode set ca9f591d-f38h-5555-a0ef-1c02d1d1e35 NO_ZERO_DATE NO_ZERO_IN_DATE STRICT_ALL_TABLES ALLOW_INVALID_DATES
