Subject [jira] [Commented] (PHOENIX-5054) "look up" the `CREATE TABLE` statement used for a table
Date Wed, 05 Dec 2018 01:29:00 GMT

Do you guys think if we can merge this with PHOENIX-5034? We can just audit the whole history
instead of creating the statement (where we might miss something)? We have an internal tool
that audits the schema and I believe that this will be a good feature to push inside the phoenix-core
as well.

> This is a super common problem we run into:
>  # User files report/complaint
>  # We ask for DDLs for table and any indexes
>  # We receive the output of `describe <table>` from the HBase shell
> Presumably, we have all of the necessary information inside of {{SYSTEM.CATALOG}}, we
could recreate the {{CREATE TABLE}} statement for a table, no? I think it would be super helpful
to, at a given point in time, obtain the {{CREATE TABLE}} statement to recreate a table as
it currently exists.
> Split points might be the only thing we can't explicitly do via Phoenix, but that's pretty
minor compared to everything else.
