Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-10427) collect_list() and collect_set() should accept struct types as argument
Date Thu, 04 Jun 2015 23:26:38 GMT


Lefty Leverenz commented on HIVE-10427:

Doc note:  Adding TODOC2.0 label since this was committed to master today.  If it is also
committed to branch-1, please replace TODOC2.0 with TODOC1.3.

Documentation for collect_list() and collect_set() is in the UDAF section on the UDFs page:

* [Built-in Aggregate Functions (UDAF) |]

> The collect_list() and collect_set() functions currently only accept scalar argument
types. It would be very useful if these functions could also accept struct argument types
for creating nested data from flat data.
> For example, suppose I wanted to create a nested customers/orders table from two flat
tables, customers and orders. Then it'd be very convenient to write something like this:
> {code}
> insert into table nested_customers_orders
> select c.*, collect_list(named_struct("oid", o.oid, "order_date":
> from customers c inner join orders o on (c.cid = o.oid)
> group by c.cid
> {code}
> Thanks you for your consideration.
