Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-736) MetaStoreUtils get_fields() does not return partition column
Date Fri, 07 Aug 2009 05:35:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-736?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12740414#action_12740414

Eric Hwang commented on HIVE-736:

Actually I just talked to Zheng offline and I guess the get_fields function should NOT return
the partition column under its proper usage. I can work around this by calling get_tables
and then join the partitionkey field descriptors with the result of get_fields. I'll do this
for now, however, this seems rather roundabout and I think there should still be a function
which just returns all field descriptors altogether.

> MetaStoreUtil's get_fields(), which is offered through the Hive Server interface, does
not include the partition field in its returned list of fields. This may be related to JIRA-671.
At the moment, there is no way for a Hive client to discover a partition column in a table,
creating a big issue for anyone who wishes to query a partitioned table.
