Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-5376) Hive does not honor type for partition columns when altering column type
Date Thu, 03 Apr 2014 23:54:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-5376?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13959442#comment-13959442

Sergey Shelukhin commented on HIVE-5376:
----------------------------------------

Hmm... would it be be better to do on metastore side? Both safer, cause someone else like
HCat can all the API, and more efficient to get data

> Followup for HIVE-5297. If partition column of type string is changed to int, the data
is not verified. The values for partition columns are all in metastore db, so it's easy to
check and fail the type change.
> alter_partition_coltype.q (or some other test?) checks this behavior right now.
