Can't create nullable timestamps #13099

Expected and Actual Behavior

I'm trying to use the Column class to create tables in my database. In these tables I try to create a timestamp column that is nullable using the following code:

new Column('deadline', 'type' => Column::TYPE_TIMESTAMP, 'notNull' => false, 'default' => null)

I would expect to have created a nullable timestamp column with its default value being null, however instead a timestamp column would be created with current_timestamp as default together with the on update current_timestamp property, all following timestamp columns will have default '0000-00-00 00:00:00'.


  • Phalcon version: 3.2.1
  • PHP Version: 7.1.9
  • Operating System: ubuntu 16.04.1
  • Installation type: Compiling from source
  • Zephir version: 0.9.9
  • Server: Apache
  • Other related info:
    Generated query will have the following in it:
    CREATE TABLE `table` (
        `timestamp1` timestamp,
        `timestamp2` timestamp
    which will result in a table with columns like:
    CREATE TABLE `table` (
        `timestamp2` timestamp NOT NULL DEFAULT '0000-00-00 00:00:00'
    Instead it should generate:
    CREATE TABLE `table` (
        `timestamp1` timestamp NULL DEFAULT NULL,
        `timestamp2` timestamp NULL DEFAULT NULL

Do you think this fix could be included with 3.2.x, since it's a bugfix not a feature? (Current Phalcon system doesn't respond to 'notNull' => false correctly and causes issues. It's causing our applications to break.)
