Hive Partitioning Supported Data Types

We are working on handling the Supported Data types in Hive on which users can create partitions.

For Cloudera they have started supporting Hive partitions on Numeric fields in newer versions of CDH like 5.8.

But we need exact Hive version and CDH version from where the support has been released.

Also, if you could check the Support is there for Date Field partitioning or not in CDH.

Re: Hive Partitioning Supported Data Types

Supporting numeric partition type should be supported from early versions of CDH. Does your CDH before 5.8 does not work?

Date partition field is supported.

Re: Hive Partitioning Supported Data Types

Sorry about the late reply.

I can't find the exact version you are looking for, but I believe it was from very early versions. Why do you need this info? If you have specific version, can you just test in there and confirm?
