Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-4086) Cross Database Support for Indexes and Partitions (or all DDL statements)
Date Wed, 27 Feb 2013 19:19:15 GMT


Todd Wilson commented on HIVE-4086:

Hello Jarcec:

Thank you for the reply.  I appreciate this.  I figured you might have something like this,
but I couldn't find it.  It was my first time entering an issue so I was assuming I'd do something

As far as the USE command goes, I'll give that a try.  I actually didn't realize this command
was supported.  That would help a lot in what I'm trying to do.  I'm switching back between
a lot of data sources like Teradata, ParAccel, Kognitio so sometimes my brain gets scrambled.

Thank you again.

Best Regards,

> 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
