Subject [jira] [Updated] (SQOOP-2647) Add option for drop-if-exists when using sqoop hcat import.
Date Mon, 30 Nov 2015 08:05:10 GMT

]

Muhammad Ehsan ul Haque updated SQOOP-2647:
-------------------------------------------
    Description: To recover from a failed sqoop import via hcat using --create-hcatalog-table,
there is a manual step needed to clean up the hive table i.e. (DROP TABLE IF EXISTS <table_name>).
It would be great to have another flag --drop-and-create-hcatalog-table, which works like
--create-hcatalog-table with an addition of drop if exists before creating the table.  (was:

would be great to have another flag --drop-hcatalog-table-if-exists, which works only if --create-hcatalog-table
is present and the effect would be that it drops the hive/hcatalog table before running the
data import.)
