Subject [jira] Created: (HIVE-91) Allow external tables with different partition directory structure
Date Mon, 01 Dec 2008 17:45:44 GMT
Allow external tables with different partition directory structure
------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: HIVE-91
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-91
             Project: Hadoop Hive
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Metastore
            Reporter: Johan Oskarsson
            Priority: Minor


A lot of users have datasets in a directory structures similar to this in hdfs: /dataset/yyyy/MM/dd/<one
or more files>
Instead of loading these into Hive the normal way it would be useful to create an external
table with the /dataset location and then one partition per yyyy/mm/dd. This would require
the partition "naming to directory"-function to be made more flexible.
