Subject Re: Dropping a built in secondary index on a CF
Date Thu, 28 Apr 2011 04:26:11 GMT

You just need to use the update column family command on the cassandra-cli
and specify the columns and their metadata. To get the metadata of the
columns in the CF, you can do describe keyspace <keyspacename>. Keep in mind
that, in your update CF command, the other columns that must continue to
have the secondary index must be specified, otherwise, your data goes bad.
Request the community to correct me if i am wrong.
