Subject [jira] [Created] (HIVE-2949) bug with describe and reserved keyword
Date Thu, 12 Apr 2012 12:07:18 GMT
bug with describe and reserved keyword

                 Key: HIVE-2949
             Project: Hive
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 0.7.1
            Reporter: Fabian Alenius
            Priority: Minor


there seems to an issue with the describe statement and using reserved keywords for tablenames.

Specifically, describe does not seem to work on a table called 'user' even though it's escaped
in the query.

So this works:
show partitions `user`;

But this does not work:
describe `user`;
FAILED: Execution Error, return code 1 from org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.exec.DDLTask
