Support nested catalogs in ExternalCatalog

    Details

    • Type: Bug

    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: None

      Description

      We found out that the current external catalog requires three layers of references for any tables. For example, the SQL would look like the following when referencing external table:

      SELECT * FROM catalog.db.table
      

      It would be great to support only two layers of indirections which is closer to many of the deployment on Presto / Hive today.

      SELECT * FROM db.table
