Subject [jira] [Created] (HIVE-16324) Truncate table should not work when EXTERNAL property of table is true

------------------------------------------

             Summary: Truncate table should not work when EXTERNAL property of table is true
                 Key: HIVE-16324
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-16324
             Project: Hive
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Vihang Karajgaonkar
            Assignee: Vihang Karajgaonkar


Currently if you create an external table using the command {{CREATE EXTERNAL TABLE table_name}}
the {{TRUNCATE table table_name}} command fails as expected because only managed tables should
be allowed to be truncated.

But if you set the external property of a previously managed table using {{ALTER TABLE table_name
SET TBLPROPERTIES('EXTERNAL'='true')}}, truncate table command does not object and deletes
all the data from the external table.
