Subject [jira] [Created] (HIVE-11427) Location of temporary table for CREATE TABLE SELECT broken by HIVE-7079
Date Fri, 31 Jul 2015 18:27:04 GMT
Grisha Trubetskoy created HIVE-11427:
----------------------------------------

             Summary: Location of temporary table for CREATE TABLE  SELECT broken by HIVE-7079
                 Key: HIVE-11427
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-11427
             Project: Hive
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Grisha Trubetskoy


If a user _does not_ have HDFS write permissions to the _default_ database, and attempts to
create a table in a _private_ database to which the user _does_ have permissions, the following
happens:
{code}
create table grisha.blahblah as select * from some_table;
FAILED: SemanticException 0:0 Error creating temporary folder on: hdfs://nn.example.com/user/hive/warehouse.
Error encountered near token 'TOK_TMP_FILE’
{code}
The reason for this seems to be https://github.com/apache/hive/commit/05a2aff71c2682e01331cd333189ce7802233a75#diff-f2040374293a91cbcc6594ee571b20e4L1425,
specifically this line: https://github.com/apache/hive/blob/branch-0.14/ql/src/java/org/apache/hadoop/hive/ql/parse/SemanticAnalyzer.java#L1787,
which changed like this in the aforementioned commit:
{code}
-                location = wh.getDatabasePath(db.getDatabase(newTable.getDbName()));
+                location = wh.getDatabasePath(db.getDatabase(names[0]));
{code}

So before the database of the new table was used, and now the database of the table from the
select is used as I understand it.

NB: This was all inferred from just reading the code, I have not verified it.
