Subject [jira] [Commented] (ATLAS-1474) Create Entity via UI : Type of hive_column is text box requiring string , which ideally should be a drop down.
Date Sat, 21 Jan 2017 21:47:26 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ATLAS-1474?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15833158#comment-15833158

Madhan Neethiraj commented on ATLAS-1474:
-----------------------------------------

[~ssainath] - hive_column.type is modeled as 'string' in Atlas Hive model. This doesn't allow
for validation of values.
- one option is to change the attribute to an enum type. However that would require changes
to Hive hook and potential backward compatibility issues.
- another option is to enhance the model to specify list-of-values for attributes, which UI
can use to populate a dropdown list. This will have to be taken in a future release.

> Mandatory field "Type" of hive_column is a text box currently which allows users to enter
any invalid data and creates hive_column instance. The Type should be made as a drop down
list box.
