Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-12049) Help for alter command is a bit confusing
Date Wed, 01 Oct 2014 05:56:35 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-12049?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14154403#comment-14154403

Misty Stanley-Jones commented on HBASE-12049:

The new patch looks great. The only thing missing (if necessary) is a mention of the possible
dangers of altering a table that is not disabled. Is it dangerous? I would assume so, since
the default is not to allow it.

> A part of current help message
> {code}
> Here is some help for this command:
> Alter a table. Depending on the HBase setting ("hbase.online.schema.update.enable"),
> the table must be disabled or not to be altered (see help 'disable').
> You can add/modify/delete column families, as well as change table
> configuration. Column families work similarly to create; column family
> spec can either be a name string, or a dictionary with NAME attribute.
> Dictionaries are described on the main help command output.
