Overview to managing schemas
You can use DDL statements such as CREATE SCHEMA, USE SCHEMA and DROP SCHEMA to manage schemas.
You must have
admin privileges in HBase to run CREATE SCHEMA or DROP SCHEMA.
See the Apache Phoenix Grammar reference page for how you can use these DDL statements.
As you create physical tables, views, and indexes, you can associate them with a schema. If
the schema already has namespace mapping enabled, the newly created objects automatically
become part of the HBase namespace. The directory of the HBase namespace that maps to the
Phoenix schema inherits the schema name. For example, if the schema name is
store1, then the full path to the namespace is
$hbase.rootdir/data/store1. See the "F.A.Q." section of Apache Phoenix
Namespace Mapping for more information.
