Hi,

I need help with the mysql GET_LOCK function. I have something like this:

        var locked bool
        r := db.QueryRow("SELECT GET_LOCK('abc', 1)")
        if err := r.Scan(&locked); err != nil {
                return false
        }
        fmt.Println("returning lock!", locked)
        return locked

Locked return as if the operation worked successfully, but I check in the database SELECT IS_FREE_LOCK(‘abc’) and it is still free… So seems like GET_LOCK is not working. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance! :slight_smile:
