Subject [jira] [Created] (HIVE-2777) ability to add and drop partitions atomically
Date Sun, 05 Feb 2012 03:35:05 GMT
ability to add and drop partitions atomically

                 Key: HIVE-2777
             Project: Hive
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Metastore
            Reporter: Aniket Mokashi
             Fix For: 0.9.0

Hive should have ability to atomically add and drop partitions. This way admins can change
partitions atomically without breaking the running jobs. It allows admin to merge several
partitions into one.
Essentially, we would like to have an api- add_drop_partitions(String db, String tbl_name,
List<Partition> addParts, List<List<String>> dropParts, boolean deleteData);
This jira covers changes required for metastore and thrift.
