Hadoop Hive: recursively descending into subdirectories without partitions or editing hive-site.xml

0 votes

I run the following commands before running the Hive query to descend into the subfolders:

set hive.input.dir.recursive=true;
set hive.mapred.supports.subdirectories=true;
set hive.supports.subdirectories=true;
set mapred.input.dir.recursive=true;

I've seen posts where people set these properties at the table-level.

TBLPROPERTIES ("hive.input.dir.recursive" = "TRUE", 
    "hive.mapred.supports.subdirectories" = "TRUE",
    "hive.supports.subdirectories" = "TRUE", 
    "mapred.input.dir.recursive" = "TRUE");

Is there any other way to do this?

 I set the following properties before I create my external table in the Hive query and it works for me.

SET hive.mapred.supports.subdirectories=TRUE;
SET mapred.input.dir.recursive=TRUE;
