Dropping Partitions

The OFFLINE and NO_DROP keywords in the CASCADE clause for dropping partitions causes performance problems and is no longer supported.

Before Upgrade to CDP

You could use OFFLINE and NO_DROP keywords in the DROP CASCADE clause to prevent partitions from being read or dropped.

After Upgrade to CDP

OFFLINE and NO_DROP are not supported in the DROP CASCADE clause.

Action Required

Change applications to remove OFFLINE and NO_DROP from the DROP CASCADE clause. Use an authorization scheme, such as Ranger, to prevent partitions from being dropped or read.
