Hello @Manoj690 


Thanks for using Cloudera Community. Your concern is Phoenix Table created on top of a Restored Table isn't showing the Non-PrimaryKey Columns correctly.


Can you share the Steps used by your Team to backup the Table & subsequent restore. Additionally, Whether the Backup & Restore are being performed within the same Cluster along with the Distribution being used (For Versioning Check).

backup command
running with hbase super user

hbase backup create full hdfs://hostname:port/backup -t table_name

restore command

hbase restore hdfs://hostname:port/backup -t table_name

we did this on same cluster
