Disallow making external tables transactional

    Details

    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Closed
    • Priority: Major
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: 2.0.0

      Description

      The fact that compactor rewrites contents of ACID tables is in conflict with what is expected of external tables.

      Conversely, end user can write to External table which certainly not what is expected of ACID table.

      So we should explicitly disallow making an external table ACID.
