Unnecessary GROUP BY expressions
Applies to ✅ Open Source Edition ✅ Express Edition ✅ Professional Edition ✅ Enterprise Edition
When an ordinary grouping set expression is repeated in the GROUP BY clause (i.e. not ROLLUP, CUBE, or GROUPING SETS), then one of the expressions can be removed as it has no effect.
Using Settings.transformPatternsUnnecessaryGroupByExpressions, the following transformations can be achieved:
-- With Settings.transformPatternsUnnecessaryGroupByExpressions active, this: SELECT a, b, count(*) FROM t GROUP BY a, b, a; -- ... is transformed into the equivalent expression: SELECT a, b, count(*) FROM t GROUP BY a, b;
