Subject [jira] [Created] (HIVE-11145) Remove OFFLINE and NO_DROP from tables and partitions
Date Mon, 29 Jun 2015 22:44:05 GMT
Alan Gates created HIVE-11145:

             Summary: Remove OFFLINE and NO_DROP from tables and partitions
                 Key: HIVE-11145
             Project: Hive
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Metastore, SQL
    Affects Versions: hbase-metastore-branch
            Reporter: Alan Gates
            Assignee: Alan Gates
             Fix For: hbase-metastore-branch

Currently a table or partition can be marked no_drop or offline.  This prevents users from
dropping or reading (and dropping) the table or partition.  This was built in 0.7 before SQL
standard authorization was an option. 

This is an expensive feature as when a table is dropped every partition must be fetched and
checked to make sure it can be dropped.

This feature is also redundant now that real authorization is available in Hive.

This feature should be removed.
