             Summary: Support for Symlinked Table Paths to be used in Drill Queries.
                 Key: DRILL-5984
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DRILL-5984
             Project: Apache Drill
          Issue Type: New Feature
    Affects Versions: 1.11.0
         Environment: OS : CentOS 7.1
MapR-DB Version: 5.2.2

            Reporter: Saravanabavagugan Vengadasundaram


MapR-FS supports symlinks and hence MapR-DB table paths support symlinks as well. As part
of the project I work on, we use symlinks as a means of communication to talk to the physical
file. An employee table in MapR-DB will be represented as  "/tables/Employee/Entity_1233232"
and there will be a symlink called "/tables/Employee/Entity" pointing to the actual physical
table. Currently, drill does not understand queries having the symlink path but only executes
queries having the actual physical table path. So every time, I need to find out the actual
physical path of the table and frame my query. It would be nice to have this feature in next
version of Drill.
