>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: hive-integration
>            Reporter: Santosh Achhra
>            Assignee: Chris Teoh
>            Priority: Minor
>              Labels: External, Hive,, Scoop,, Tables, newbie
>             Fix For: 1.4.7
> Sqoop is not supporting HIVE external tables at the moment. Any imports using 
> scoop creates a managed table, in real world scenario it is very important to 
> have EXTERNAL tables. As of now we have to execute ALTER statement to change 
> table properties to make the the table as external table which is not a big 
> deal but it would nice have an option in scoop to specify type of table which 
> is required
