Subject Importing existing HBase table's rowkey
Date Wed, 22 Jul 2015 00:43:35 GMT
Hi,

I'm trying to map an existing HBase table to Phoenix. Can the existing HBase table's rowkey
be imported as the rowkey of the Phoenix table? On this page (https://phoenix.apache.org/faq.html#How_I_map_Phoenix_table_to_an_existing_HBase_table),
there's an example:
CREATE VIEW t1 ( pk VARCHAR PRIMARY KEY, f1.val VARCHAR )
Here, is pk the HBase table's column that's being used as the primary key, or is it a Phoenix
keyword/placeholder to refer to the HBase table's rowkey? My table's rowkey is made up of
several fields that are not stored as columns in that table. If I could just import the rowkey
into Phoenix, that'd be great.

Thank you!
Sincerely,Anchal
