I managed to reproduce this.
create table test1(key1 varchar not null,key2 varchar not null,"p".val1
varchar,CONSTRAINT pk PRIMARY KEY(key1,key2)) Compression = 'SNAPPY'
ALTER TABLE test1 ADD "p".val2 varchar,"p".val3 varchar,"p".val4 varchar
create view test_view1(key2 varchar,val1 varchar, val2 varchar,val3
varchar,val4 varchar) AS select * from test1 where key1='key1'
ALTER TABLE test1 ADD "p".val5 varchar
After the last step I get
Error: ERROR 1010 (42M01): Not allowed to mutate table. Cannot drop column
referenced by VIEW columnName=TEST1
I was trying to create the table with a java program and that time it wasnt
reproducible today I tried the steps with Squirrel client and I could
reproduce this. (Hope this helps)
We are using 4.5.2 of Phoenix.
