Subject Re: SparkSQL API to insert DataFrame into a static partition?
Date Wed, 02 Dec 2015 03:57:30 GMT
I don't think there's api for that, but think it is reasonable and helpful
for ETL.

As a workaround you can first register your dataframe as temp table, and
use sql to insert to the static partition.
