[bcc:sqoop-user@cloudera.org (deprecated), to:
sqoop-user@incubator.apache.org. Please continue the discussion on
Apache mailing lists - for more information see [1]].


Sqoop does support populating Hive partitions. The relevant command
line arguments you need to supply are --hive-partition-key <key-name>,
--hive-partition-value <value-string>. Please refer to the user-guide
for more details.
