Truncate TableΒΆ

TRUNCATE TABLE table_name [PARTITION part_spec]

    : (part_col1=value1, part_col2=value2, ...)

Delete all rows from a table or matching partitions in the table. The table must not be a temporary table, an external table, or a view.

Specify a partial partition spec to match partitions to be truncated. This is only supported for tables created using the Hive format.
