    Description

      The following query doesn't seem to work:

      select * from table_a a where id in (select id from table_a where id =2) OR a.id = 1;

      ERROR: AnalysisException: Subqueries in OR predicates are not supported

      The same query works if I replace OR with AND operator.
      This is an un-correlated subquery. Basically does the same thing as a join, so the query engine should be able to execute this.
      Is there a specific reason this is not supported or this is a known bug?
