Sqoop DB2 Import with BLOB Datatype (Has XML Data) to Hive Table

I am trying to import a DB2 Table into Hive which is having a field defined as BLOB datatype which will have XML stored in it.

But getting the below error. Is there any workaround?

Import Script: sqoop import --connect jdbc:db2://smatest.os390.allmerica.com:4104/SMATEST --username ******** --password ******** --table HNDBD034.T3T02T_RATE_TXN_XML_LOG --split-by ID -m 1 --hive-import;

As part of the import, you need to determine data type mappings. There are a number of data types that will not get implicitly converted to Hive. As @Satish Bomma suggested, you need to explicitly help sqoop to use a target data type.

Hello,

I am importing a DB2 database with Sqoop to Hive. Is there any way to permanently store mappings for specific types? I am importing several tables that contain "Character" columns which all have to be mapped manually. I want to permanently store that "Character" is stored as "Varchar".
Can this be done?

Hello @VidyaSargur,

 

thanks for your answer. You are totally right. I only realized that this is an older thread after I had already posted. 

 

Therefore I already created a new thread (https://community.cloudera.com/t5/Support-Questions/Permanently-store-sqoop-map-column-hive-mapping-...).
