CTAS now requires client to explicitly close operation


    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Resolved
    • Priority: Critical
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: Impala 2.3.0
    • Fix Version/s: Impala 2.3.0
    • Component/s: None


      The behavior around CTAS has changed a little in 2.3 and I don't think this was intended. In both hs2/beeswax, I've found that the client most issue a close_operation() call before closing the connection otherwise the creation will fail when the connection is closed. In 2.2 the CTAS would succeed.

      Workaround is to add an explicit call to close_operation, as below.

      import impala.dbapi
      conn = impala.dbapi.connect()
      cursor = conn.cursor()
      cursor.execute("DROP TABLE IF EXISTS foo")
      cursor.execute("CREATE TABLE foo AS SELECT * FROM tpch_100_parquet.customer")
      cursor.close_operation()   # Now required, otherwise creation will fail when the conn is closed.
      cursor.close()   # I think Impyla should be changed to call close_operation() here

      If a sleep() is added before the close(), the web ui shows the query state is "finished".

      Maybe if the session is closing and the CTAS has already executed successfully then the table can be kept.

      Fyi, I tried this in hue and things seemed to work. I ran a CTAS and went back to CM. The table was still visible in impala-shell. Not sure if that's a good test though.
