The PRIMARY KEY constraint uniquely identifies each record in a table.
You have to make sure you have enough space for this.When modifying a constraint, the constraint can be identified using either the constraint name or the columns in the constraint definition along with the type of the constraint.Primary keys can also be identified using the PRIMARY KEY keyword, because each table can have only a single primary key. rename table or swap table with another table, the constraints are updated to reflect the changes.Such statements produce a warning in the error log when using statement-based mode and are written to the binary log using the row-based format when using statement against a table having more than one unique or primary key is also marked as unsafe.(Bug #11765650, Bug #58637) See also Section 126.96.36.199, “Advantages and Disadvantages of Statement-Based and Row-Based Replication”.
