Subject [jira] [Created] (DRILL-6168) Table functions do not "inherit" default configuration
Date Mon, 19 Feb 2018 06:38:00 GMT
Paul Rogers created DRILL-6168:

             Summary: Table functions do not "inherit" default configuration
                 Key: DRILL-6168
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DRILL-6168
             Project: Apache Drill
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.12.0
            Reporter: Paul Rogers

See DRILL-6167 that describes an attempt to use a table function with a regex format plugin.

Consider the plugin configuration:

    RegexFormatConfig sampleConfig = new RegexFormatConfig();
    sampleConfig.extension = "log1";
    sampleConfig.regex = DATE_ONLY_PATTERN;
    sampleConfig.fields = Lists.newArrayList("year", "month", "day");

(This plugin is defined in code in a test rather than the usual JSON in the Web console.)

Run a test with the above. Things work fine.

Now, try the plugin config with a table function as described in DRILL-6167:

      String sql = "SELECT * FROM table(cp.`regex/simple.log2`\n" +
          "(type => 'regex', regex => '(\\\\d\\\\d\\\\d\\\\d)-(\\\\d\\\\d)-(\\\\d\\\\d)

Because we are using a file with suffix "log2", the query will match the format plugin config
defined above. A query without the table function does, in fact, work using the defined config.
But, with a table function, we get this warning from our regex code:

13307 WARN [257590e1-e846-9d82-61d4-e246a4925ac3:frag:0:0] [org.apache.drill.exec.store.easy.regex.RegexRecordReader]
- Column list has fewer
  names than the pattern has groups, filling extras with Column$n.

(The warning is in the custom plugin, not Drill.) This is the plugin saying, "hey! you didn't
provide column names!". But, in the format definition, we did provide names. If we run the
query without a table function, we do see those names used.


3 row(s):
Total rows returned : 3.  Returned in 9072ms.

Yes, indeed, the table function discarded the defined format config values, filling in blanks,
including for the column names.

The expected behavior is that all properties defined in the config should remain unchanged
_except_ for those in the table function. Why? In order to know which format plugin to use,
the code has to map from the suffix (".log2" here) to a format plugin _config_. (The config
is the only thing that specifies a suffix.) Since we mapped to a config (not the unconfigured
plugin), we'd expect the config properties to be used.

It is highly surprising that all we get to use is the suffix, but all other attributes are
ignored. This seems very much in the "bug" category and not at all in the "feature" category.
