Importing data from mysql based on where clause using sqoop

Hi,

Im trying to import rows from department db where department_id >5 and im running the below query

sqoop import --connect jdbc:mysql://nn01.itversity.com:3306/retail_db --username retail_dba --password itversity --table departments --where department_id > 5 --split-by department_id --target-dir /user/thareroh/departments

This query runs fine but the where clause is not getting imposed. Also without specifying the mapper numbers, its taking default mapper number as 4.
Please assist.

The below query worked :

sqoop import --connect jdbc:mysql://nn01.itversity.com:3306/retail_db --username retail_dba --password itversity --table departments --where “department_id > 5” --split-by department_id --target-dir /user/thareroh/departments

Thanks
