Currently, DataStage only supports alphabetic (letters) Column Family (CF) in HBase tables and it is a common practice to create numeric CF in HBase tables (e.g. the default CF is zero). Therefore, if CF has a numeric value DataStage cannot write data in HBase tables.
|Who would benefit from this IDEA?||All customers with numeric CF in HBase tables that want to use DataStage to write data in such tables.|
How should it work?
DataStage to support also numeric CF in HBase tables so as it can write data in HBase tables. All customer using HBase with numeric CF will benefit into that DataStage would be able to write in such database. At the moment the only work around is to recreate the tables in HBase modifying the CF but this is very costly for the customers as it affects all their table references and relations with other tools and processes.
|Priority Justification||Urgent because customer is considering the DataStage solution as feasible or not|
|Customer Name||SABIS (Banco Sabadell)|
