Shopware 6.5 - Function or Expression 'variant_listing_config' cannot be used in the CHECK clause

Error message

When updating Shopware from version 6.4 to 6.5 the following error message appears:

General error: 1901
Function or expression 'variant_listing_config' cannot be used in the CHECK clause of `variant_listing_config`

The error occurs regardless of the MariaDB version used. Therefore all MariaDB versions are affected: 10.3, 10.4, 10.5, 10.6, 10.7, 10.8, 10.9, 10.10, 10.11, 11, 11.1, 11.2, 11.3.

Problem solution

Shopware provides an update migration in version to solve the problem. Unfortunately, the problem is only solved in version, which is why the update to 6.5 still fails.

Before executing the following MySQL commands, create a server snapshot or a server backup in order to be able to return to the previous status in the event of an error.

Execute the following database commands via the MySQL CLI or PhpMyAdmin before updating to 6.5 to solve the problem:

# Create temporary database table

 `id` BINARY(16) NOT NULL,
 `version_id` BINARY(16) NOT NULL,
 `variant_listing_config` JSON NULL DEFAULT NULL,
 PRIMARY KEY (`id`, `version_id`)
) ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8mb4 COLLATE=utf8mb4_unicode_ci

# Add products to the temporary table that contain a variant_listing_config

INSERT INTO `product_tmp` (SELECT `id`, `version_id`, `variant_listing_config` FROM `product` WHERE variant_listing_config IS NOT NULL)

# Remove the variant_listing_config column from the product table

ALTER TABLE `product` DROP COLUMN `variant_listing_config`

# Add the variant_listing_config again (without the check clause)

ALTER TABLE `product` ADD COLUMN `variant_listing_config` JSON NULL DEFAULT NULL

# Add the outsourced products

UPDATE `product`
SET product.variant_listing_config = (SELECT variant_listing_config FROM product_tmp WHERE = AND product.version_id = product_tmp.version_id)
WHERE product.variant_listing_config IS NULL AND EXISTS (SELECT variant_listing_config FROM product_tmp WHERE = AND product.version_id = product_tmp.version_id)
LIMIT 1000

# Remove the temporary database table

DROP TABLE `product_tmp`

Then carry out the Shopware update to 6.5.
