I'm testing some queries in Hive, and now I would like to do the same in Impala, but I don't find the way to set variables for the scripts.
For example, for Hive I do:
hive -hiveconf DATE=1948 -f query.sql
How can I do something similar with Impala? The idea is to use the same query file.
I'm using CDH4.4.0 with Impala 1.1.1.
There's not currently an impala-shell option to do such substitution. Would you mind opening a JIRA with that request at issues.cloudera.org?
