Removing a Table

Use either the Control System or the maprcli table delete command to drop a HPE Ezmeral Data Fabric Database table.

Removing a Table Using the Control System

To remove a table:
  1. Go to the table information page.
  2. Click Remove Table.
    The Remove Table confirmation window displays.
  3. Click Remove Table to remove the table.
    After the table is removed, data in the table cannot be recovered.

Removing a Table Using the CLI or REST API

Run the command maprcli table delete -path <path> .

  • For a path on the local cluster, start the path at the volume mount point. For example, for a table named test under a volume with a mount point at /volume1, specify the following path: /volume1/test
  • For a path on a remote cluster, you must also specify the cluster name in the path. For example, for a table named customer under volume1 in the sanfrancisco cluster, specify the following path:/mapr/sanfrancisco/volume1/customer
    Note: You cannot use the following characters in the table name:
     < > ? % \
    To use the following characters in the table name, enclose them either in single or double quotes:
    ; | ( ) / 
    For example:
    maprcli table create -path "/設備^=#;{}&()/"  (or)
    maprcli table create -path '/設備^=#;{}&()/'
    To use either the ' or the " character in the table name, enclose:
    • the ' character within double quotes (")
    • the " character within single quote (')
    For example:
    maprcli table create -path "/'設備^=#;{}&()/"  (or)
    maprcli table create -path '/"設備^=#;{}&()/'
