Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-19919) HiveServer2 - expose queryable data dictionary (ie Oracles' ALL_TAB_COLUMNS)
Date Mon, 18 Jun 2018 14:42:00 GMT

syscolumns containing table_name,column_name, data_type, col_order. Adding this feature to
HiveServer2 would be very convenient for users.

should be exposed up into the HiveServer2 10000 port connection. Thus saving users from having
2 connections (1 to see data, 1 to see metadata). For security reason too, mysql can be firewalled from
