I am trying to build delta uniform. What I found is inside Databricks, you can't use Glue catalog to create delta uniform table. Error Message: Universal Format is only supported on Unity Catalog tables. @Denny Lee ^^^

Hey Parthiban - I’m the Product Manager at Databricks working on Databricks. You’re right that within DBR, UniForm currently requires UC - this is because we use catalog-based Iceberg, and UC acts as that catalog. That said, we are working on ways that we’ll be able to push Iceberg metadata to external catalogs like Glue and HMS. Is there anything more you could tell us about your scenario? E.g., what you’re using Glue for, what clients use Glue as the catalog downstream, etc.

we are using glue catalog currently. my internal customers use both athena, emr and databricks. delta lake publish happens in both emr and databricks. We need Uniform as we have snowflake. Enabling glue catalog is very important for us to utilize Delta Uniform.
