Experimental features

Experimental features are still under development and are not stable enough to be used in production. Their design is not finalized, and their API will likely change, breaking backward or forward compatibility. Experimental features are available for ScyllaDB Open Source users to test and provide feedback.

ScyllaDB Enterprise and ScyllaDB Cloud do not support experimental features.

To list all the experimental features available in your ScyllaDB version, run scylla --help.

To enable an experimental feature, you can do one of the following:

  • Add or uncomment the experimental_features option in your scylla.yaml configuration file:
     - [feature_1]
     - [feature_2]
  • Run --experimental-features=[feature].
