Subject [jira] [Commented] (SQOOP-1644) Sqoop2: Enhance the connector/ driver config input options for better usability

Veena Basavaraj commented on SQOOP-1644:
----------------------------------------


Usually there is no need to have one solution that solves it all. I am not debating CONDITIONS
are not useful. They are advanced rules that might need this support. 

Simple things should be simple to do. Complex things should be possible. Such platforms solve
the 80%(simple) and the 20% ( complex)  cases well. 

If I have a case to just mark a particular field optional or even better just set a default
value and tell the user that if not specified we will defalt to this it makes it simpler.

This is something UI form and inputs follow as a pattern since ages.!

for config inputs in the UI/ shell client.
