Truncating Hive Targets

Truncating Hive Targets

Truncate Hive target tables to delete the table contents. You can truncate internal and external Hive tables in the Hadoop environment.
Truncate a Hive table in the Hive table properties. The following image shows the Hive table properties:
This image shows the Properties View for the Hive table. The properties to configure are located on the Advanced tab. The selected properties are Truncate target table and Truncate Hive Target Partition. These properties have checkmarks next to them.
To truncate the entire Hive table, choose the option to truncate the target table. To truncate a partition in the Hive table, you must choose to truncate the target table and to truncate the partition in the Hive target table.
Consider the following restrictions when you truncate a Hive table in a mapping that runs in the Hadoop environment:
  • The Data Integration Service can truncate the partition in the Hive target in which the data is being inserted. You must choose to both truncate the partition in the Hive target and truncate the target table.
  • You must truncate the target table to overwrite data to a Hive table with Hive version 0.7. The Data Integration Service ignores write, update override, delete, insert, and update strategy properties when it writes data to a Hive target.
