Kite dataset partition-by causing AvroTypeException on read

I created a dataset with a partition strategy with type 'year', 'month', 'day' based on timestamp and was able to write to the dataset using Flume's Kite dataset sink.


But on read using HIve, I notice this exception for "select * from <tbl> limit 10;" query: org.apache.avro.AvroTypeException: Found logs_table,
expecting logs_table, missing required field typeid


typeid is not a required field and has a default null defined. If I create the dataset without the partitioning strategy, I'm able to run the query and get the expected results.


Any input on what might be going wrong? Thanks!
