Demand Feedback
Please clearly and accurately describe the problem scenario, desired behavior, and background information to facilitate timely follow-up by the product team.
[Problem Scenario Involved in the Demand]

[Expected Desired Behavior] Add custom function feature

[Alternative Solutions for the Demand]
No alternative solutions at the moment
[Background Information]
During the internal promotion of TiDB and the integration of multiple MySQL clusters, we encountered a large number of custom functions in MySQL instances. From a development perspective, adapting and modifying the code would undoubtedly involve a significant amount of work and pose considerable risks for smooth migration. We have faced many obstacles in migrating to the TiDB cluster and hope that the product can support this feature as soon as possible.
