Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-11261) DESCRIBE database qualifier does not work when calling DESCRIBE on column or nested columns.
Date Tue, 14 Jul 2015 21:29:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-11261?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14627078#comment-14627078
] 

Jenny Kim commented on HIVE-11261:
----------------------------------

I don't know if they are necessarily related because in this case the database name is different
than the table name and calling DESCRIBE `default`.`merchants`; executes successfully.

> FAILED: SemanticException [Error 10001]: Table not found default.merchants.products.$value$
