Hi. I have created a table with a few columns in HBase and I want to remove an attribute to set to one of the columns. The table name is employees, the column name is emp_details, and the attribute I want to remove is XYZ. How can I do this?

To remove the attribute from a column, you will have to alter the table and set the attribute to nil. Refer to the code below:

hbase> alter 'employess', { NAME => 'emp_details', XYZ => nil }
