Subject [jira] [Created] (HIVE-17074) PURGE option for DROP DATABASE
Date Tue, 11 Jul 2017 16:50:00 GMT
Muthu Manickam created HIVE-17074:

             Summary: PURGE option for DROP DATABASE
                 Key: HIVE-17074
             Project: Hive
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Muthu Manickam
            Priority: Critical

PURGE (skipTrash) option is supported only at the table level. It would be nice to have this
at database level as well and this could be added along with CASCADE option to skip trash
when someone is ready to drop all the tables. This would make the clean up tasks simple and

Example: DROP DATABASE <database_name> CASCADE *{color:red}PURGE{color}*
