upto what level of dot notations can be tried in Impala query formation

New Contributor

we need to query an array of struct and we can see that more than 1 level of dots are not accepted in the SQL query and it throws error when such queries are executed.

e.g., select abc, def, a1.b1 from xxx where so n so --> This query executes successfully.

 

but the following:

e.g., select abc, def, a1.b1.c1 from xxx where so n so --> This query fails irrespective of us defining the correct arguments in the from section.

-------------------------------

Can someone tell how many such levels of dot notations are allowed/supported in Impala. I was unable to find any Impala document which was explaining this.
