After I update the column type:

update column family User with column_metadata = [{column_name : 77, validation_class : Int32Type}];

I can't list the data in User column family:

list User;

RowKey: 1234
A int is exactly 4 bytes: 2

Any ideas for this?

There isn't (as long as you're right to be sure of course).
