Miklos Gergely commented on HIVE-21896:
---------------------------------------

[~ashutoshc] please decide what to accept as proper DDL, and what is not, then I'll do the
code changes, and [~mulehoofs@gmail.com] can do the documentation changes.

> According to [https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/Hive/LanguageManual+DDL#LanguageManualDDL-ShowFunctions] the
currently available functions can be listed like this:
> {code:java}
> SHOW FUNCTIONS <pattern>;{code}
> If the user executes this command, they will get the correct list of functions, but
they will also see this on the standard output:
> {code:java}
> SHOW FUNCTIONS is deprecated, please use SHOW FUNCTIONS LIKE instead.{code}
> If the user uses the
> {code:java}
> SHOW FUNCTIONS LIKE <pattern>;{code}
> command then they will receive the exact same result (though through different codes).
The only difference is that one can get all the function names with "SHOW FUNCTIONS;", while
"SHOW FUNCTIONS LIKE;" returns an exception, so in this case the pattern is mandatory.
> So there should be a decision if we still accept "SHOW FUNCTIONS" without the "LIKE".
My suggestion is to accept it only if there is no pattern. so "SHOW FUNCTIONS;" is ok, without
deprecation message, but "SHOW FUNCTIONS <pattern>" should throw an exception.
> Whatever we decide, we should document it appropriately.
