Wrong date cast in filter (Spark)


I'm using PowerBi Service with Direct Query to Spark HDinsight. One of my fields in table is timestamp - but when I try to filter my report by specific date, I got blank values. 

I've checked the query sent to Spark and see next:


SELECT (...) `t4` WHERE ( `t4`.`tsday` = CAST( '4/21/2016' AS timestamp) )
SELECT (...) `t4` WHERE ( (`t4`.`tsday`) >= (CAST( '4/21/2016 12:00:01 AM' AS timestamp))

Both cases are unacceptable for Hive, it expects specific format: "yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss.SSS"


I don't have any idea what to do, using time features is very powerful option and it seems like no walkarounds to do it

@ankitpatira, I can see all queries that thrift server receives in Spark History
