Subject [jira] [Commented] (ATLAS-1110) Improve Atlas Entity Rest API to show Hive column type (e.g int) as a JSON Object.
Date Wed, 10 Aug 2016 04:31:20 GMT


Hemanth Yamijala commented on ATLAS-1110:

The entity definition for a hive column already defines the column type as an attribute. When
we GET the entity using Atlas REST API, we should be seeing a *values* attribute which is
a map that contains all the attributes defined for a type with the values of the specific
entity being retrieved. In the report above, I am not sure if the entire response is captured.
Can you please check the entire response, or paste it here for reference?

> I am looking to get hold of the real type (int in this case) - I can see that in the
entityText there as an int. It would be really helpful if this type (and the other information)
was properly exposed in the API as json objects;  not a text string that I need to parse which
potentially could change its content.
