Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-8472) Add ALTER DATABASE SET LOCATION
Date Fri, 04 Aug 2017 23:25:03 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-8472?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16115084#comment-16115084

Alan Gates commented on HIVE-8472:
----------------------------------

One other point, to save Lefty the time of saying it, the docs need changed to reflect this
new functionality.  In particular, it needs to call out that changing the location does not
move any existing data.  It does not even affect where existing tables will write new data
(including new partitions).  It just changes where new tables will be located by default.

> Similarly to ALTER TABLE tablename SET LOCATION, it would be helpful if there was an
equivalent for databases.
