Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-16324) Truncate table should not work when EXTERNAL property of table is true
Date Wed, 10 May 2017 05:29:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-16324?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16004095#comment-16004095

Ashutosh Chauhan commented on HIVE-16324:
-----------------------------------------

Sql is suppose to be case insensitive, so current behavior I think is buggy and should be
correct. [~thejas] Any comments?

> 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.
> Eg: This works but it should not ..
