>                 Key: DRILL-4694
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DRILL-4694
>             Project: Apache Drill
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Storage - JSON
>    Affects Versions: 1.6.0

> Consider the following JSON file: 
> {noformat}
> // file t2.json
> {
> "X" : {
>   "key1" : "value1",
>   "key2" : "value2"
>   } 
> }
> {
> "X" : {
>   "key3" : "value3",
>   "key4" : "value4"
>   }
> }
> {
> "X" : {
>   "key5" : "value5",
>   "key6" : "value6"
>   }
> }
> {noformat}
> Now create a table in Json format using CTAS: 
> {noformat}
> 0: jdbc:drill:zk=local> alter session set `store.format` = 'json';
> 0: jdbc:drill:zk=local> create table dfs.tmp.jt12 as select t.`X` from `t2.json` t;
> +-----------+----------------------------+
> | Fragment  | Number of records written  |
> +-----------+----------------------------+
> | 0_0       | 3                          |
> +-----------+----------------------------+
> {noformat}
> The output file has rows with union schema of all the fields in all the records.  This
creates extraneous Null fields in the output: 
> {noformat}
> $ cat jt12/0_0_0.json 
> {
>   "X" : {
>     "key1" : "value1",
>     "key2" : "value2",
>     "key3" : null,
>     "key4" : null,
>     "key5" : null,
>     "key6" : null
>   }
> } {
>   "X" : {
>     "key1" : null,
>     "key2" : null,
>     "key3" : "value3",
>     "key4" : "value4",
>     "key5" : null,
>     "key6" : null
>   }
> } {
>   "X" : {
>     "key1" : null,
>     "key2" : null,
>     "key3" : null,
>     "key4" : null,
>     "key5" : "value5",
>     "key6" : "value6"
>   }
> }
> {noformat}
> Note that if I change the output format to CSV or Parquet, there are no Null fields created
in the output file.   The expectation for a CTAS in json format is that the output should
match that of the input json data.
