Joshua McKenzie updated CASSANDRA-12644:
----------------------------------------
    Issue Type: Improvement  (was: Bug)

> CREATE OR ALTER TABLE
> ---------------------
>
>                 Key: CASSANDRA-12644
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-12644
>             Project: Cassandra
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>            Reporter: Jon Haddad

> Similar to how tools like Puppet & Chef allow you to specify what you want rather
than how you want it done, it would be nice to be able to give Cassandra this:
> {code}CREATE OR ALTER TABLE stuff ( 
> id int primary key,
> name text,
> city text,
> state text);{code}
> and it would look at the existing schema and work out that it needed to add fields that
are missing.  This should only work in a non destructive fashion, that is, it should not remove
fields, indexes, etc.  If a user attempts to change a table and the action would be destructive,
they should get an error that they have to apply those changes explicitly.
