Unable to generate empty hive table

Level 1
Unable to generate empty hive table

Hi EveryBody,

I created a simple flow in Dataiku. This flow will be executed everyday and data should be updated from the source.

My question is : Sometimes, my filter can't get any data in step preparation because we didin't receive any new data. When the flow is executed it returns an error : Unable to generate empty hive table definition.

How can I deal with this error ? I just want to see an empty table without any error.

Thank you in advance.

Your table needs to have a definition and schema. This could be caused due to your input dataset not having a schema or being built. 

Good luck!
