Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-10885) Support visibility expressions on Deletes
Date Thu, 12 Jun 2014 10:07:02 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-10885?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14028985#comment-14028985

Anoop Sam John commented on HBASE-10885:

In 98.3 we allow the puts to have the vis exp in it.  When a user issue delete, it will delete
all covered cells (irrespective of whether the put cells having tags in it or not).  This
way it works till 98.3 Now in 98.4 we will change this behavior. Is that okey?

> Accumulo can specify visibility expressions for delete markers. During compaction the
cells covered by the tombstone are determined in part by matching the visibility expression.
This is useful for the use case of data set coalescing, where entries from multiple data sets
carrying different labels are combined into one common large table. Later, a subset of entries
can be conveniently removed using visibility expressions.
> Currently doing the same in HBase would only be possible with a custom coprocessor. Otherwise,
a Delete will affect all cells covered by the tombstone regardless of any visibility expression
scoping. This is correct behavior in that no data spill is possible, but certainly could be
surprising, and is only meant to be transitional. We decided not to support visibility expressions
on Deletes to control the complexity of the initial implementation.
