FAQ
I guess my question is pretty clear from the title.

In the installation guide for impala, you can find this sentence:

"Currently Impala only supports inserting into pre-defined tables and
partitions. Create or alter tables or
partitions through Hive."

So, will there be support for inserting in a table with dynamic
partitoning, and if, when?

    I found problems when using dynamic partition insert in Impala 1.0.

    I filed a bug https://issues.cloudera.org/browse/IMPALA-402

    Hi,
    I think that documentation is incorrect/confusing. Impala already supports
    creating partitions via dynamic inserts using the same syntax as Hive:

    INSERT INTO TABLE Foo PARTITION(part1, part2,... ) SELECT ...

    Impala does not currently support DDL statements such as ALTER TABLE ...
    ADD PARTITION, but that will be changing with the v0.7 release which will
    be going out very soon.

    Thanks,
    Lenni
