Rather odd issue with Hive schema data type changes with Avro backed data

New Contributor

I am experiencing a rather odd issue with Hive schema data type changes with Avro backed data. When my schema changes, in this case, the data type of a field, I drop and recreate the external table. In Hive CLI I see the schema has changed, but in Ambari view 2, SQL workbench or NiFi show create table does not show the changed schema. I even dropped the database, brought in the external file data and recreated the AVRO back external table and still schema shows the old schema.

What am I missing? Is there a Invalidate metadata version of Cloudera that is in Hortonworks?

Thanks.
