Table ID
This documentation is for an unreleased version of Apache Flink CDC. We recommend you use the latest stable version.

Definition #

When connecting to external systems, it is necessary to establish a mapping relationship with the storage objects of the external system. This is what Table Id refers to.

Example #

To be compatible with most external systems, the Table Id is represented by a 3-tuple : (namespace, schemaName, tableName).
Connectors should establish the mapping between Table Id and storage objects in external systems.

The following table lists the parts in table Id of different data systems:

data system parts in tableId String example
Oracle/PostgreSQL database, schema, table mydb.default.orders
MySQL/Doris/StarRocks database, table mydb.orders
Kafka topic orders
