2019-06-26 13:49:25,683 ERROR org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.exec.Task: [HiveServer2-Background-Pool: Thread-6397]: FAILED: error during drop function: org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.metadata.HiveException: NoSuchObjectException(message:Function udf_for_STORE_AGENT_VISIT does not exist)
shouldn't the error be skipped if we have the "IF EXISTS" in the command?
thanks for the response. the error occured from java - but not from hive cli (and I did not check beelonw) recently we moved from Oracle JDK to OpenJDK - could this be an issue? for now I've added hive.exec.drop.ignorenonexistent and it seems to help
