CREATE TABLE t LIKE some_view should create a new empty base table, but instead creates a copy of view

    Details

    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Closed
    • Priority: Major
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: 0.7.0
    • Fix Version/s: 0.8.0
    • Component/s: Query Processor

    • Release Note:
      In 0.8.0, CREATE TABLE LIKE view_name creates a table by adopting the schema of view_name (fields and partition columns) using defaults for serde and file formats. Before 0.8.0, CREATE TABLE LIKE view_name would make a copy of the view.

      Description

      I think it should copy only the column definitions from the view metadata. Currently it is copying the entire descriptor, resulting in a new view instead of a new base table.
