Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-736) MetaStoreUtils get_fields() does not return partition column
Date Fri, 07 Aug 2009 06:37:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-736?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12740425#action_12740425

Raghotham Murthy commented on HIVE-736:

bq.  I think there should still be a function which just returns all field descriptors altogether.

That makes sense. Instead of writing a work around, why not just add a function to the metastore
thrift api that returns all columns (including partition columns)?
list<FieldSchema> get_schema(1:string db_name, 2:string tbl_name) 
         throws (1: MetaException o1, 2: UnknownTableException o2, 3: UnknownDBException o3),

> 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.
