Subject [jira] [Created] (HIVE-4086) Cross Database Support for Indexes and Partitions (or all DDL statements)
Date Wed, 27 Feb 2013 18:37:13 GMT
Todd Wilson created HIVE-4086:

             Summary: Cross Database Support for Indexes and Partitions (or all DDL statements)
                 Key: HIVE-4086
             Project: Hive
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Database/Schema, ODBC, SQL
    Affects Versions: 0.9.0
         Environment: Writing a query tool in .NET connecting with ODBC to Hadoop on Linux.
            Reporter: Todd Wilson

I'd like to see more cross-database support.  I'm using a Cloudera implementation on Hive
.9.  Currently, you can create new databases, you can create tables and views in those databases,
but you cannot create indexes or partitions on those tables.  Likewise, commands like show
partitions or show indexes will only work on table in the default database.  This would probably
also affect statements like Alter Table and Recover Partitions.  Probably also something like
Create Function, but if you want to keep all functions being created in the default database
that would work.  I would be more interested in full cross-database support for tables and
views to start.  Functions for example could all be created in default.  Thank you.
