Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-21897) Setting serde / serde properties for partitions
Date Wed, 19 Jun 2019 23:17:00 GMT


Mithun Radhakrishnan commented on HIVE-21897:

At the risk of muddying the waters, I'd consider {{AvroSerDe}} which relies on the table/serde
settings for {{"avro.schema.url"}} and {{"avro.schema.literal"}}.
When an Avro table's schema changes, old partitions might link to an older schema-literal
SerDe-parameter value than newer partitions.

I could be wrong, but we might want to reevaluate the assumption that SerDe settings should
apply uniformly across all partitions in a table.

The execution is successful, everything remains the same. The same is true for setting the
serde properties:
> {code:java}
> ALTER TABLE table PARTITION (partition_col='partition_value') SET SERDEPROPERTIES ('property_name'='property_value');{code}
> is also a valid statement, and not doing anything.
> I suggest to modify the parser, and reject these statements. SerDe is for a table, and
not for a partition.
