I am trying to include boundary query in the sqoop script in cloudera. But, i am getting incompatible value. Could you please confirm if boundary-query can be used for sqoop import.
In general please try to include as much relevant information as possible, at minimum:
1. I am trying to run this exact scoop command
2. It gives me this exact error.
That being said, I suspect that you have an invalid query in your boundary-query.
Please start by staying as close to the documentation as possible. Assuming your import works without using the boundary-query, here is what we see in the documentation:
--boundary-query select min(<split-by>), max(<split-by>) from <table name>
This could for example translate to:
--boundary-query select min(cust_id), max(cust_id) from customer
From here, build up towards what you are actually looking for, two more creative (and untested) examples:
--boundary-query select min(cust_id), 2*max(cust_id) from customer --boundary-query select 0, 10000
Hopefully this helps, otherwise please indicate the step where you got stuck and provide as much relevant context as possible (including the exact command and output!).
