KB4581886 - FIX: Joins not getting pushed down for PolyBase query that joins multiple external tables

Applies to: SQL Server 2019 on Windows


Assume that you havea PolyBase query that joins multiple external tables from one or more externaldata sources that allow for join pushdown (that is, SQL Server, Oracle, Teradata,MongoDB, or Generic ODBC). When you run the query, you notice that thejoins are not pushed down to the external data sources. This condition usually occurs because of the presence of a global aggregation in at least one of the input operatortrees.
