      Description

      CREATE TABLE test (foo INT);
      SELECT ntile(10), foo OVER (PARTITION BY foo) FROM test;
      FAILED: SemanticException org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.metadata.HiveException: Only COMPLETE mode supported for NTile function
      
      SELECT foo, ntile(10) OVER (PARTITION BY foo) FROM test;
      ...works...
      

      I'm not sure if that is a bug or necessary. Either way the error message is not helpful as it's not documented anywhere what COMPLETE mode is. A cursory glance at the code didn't help me either.

      Edit: It is not a bug, it wasn't clear to me that the OVER clause only applies to the directly preceding function.
