Recreating "show create table" with webhcat?

Recreating "show create table" with webhcat?

Explorer

In testing out several REST API endpoints for webhcat, as seen at https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/Hive/WebHCat+Reference, it seems that in order to mimic 'show create table' to create a hcatalog table, I would need to combine the extended table info and table properties.

Is there a simpler way to do this? Is there an API call that more closely aligns with hive/beeline 'show create table' ?
