–table or --query is required for import. (Or use sqoop import-all-tables.)
Try --help for usage instructions.
[ajinkyasaraf13@gw01 ~]$ – target-dir /user/ajinkyasaraf13/sqoop_import/departments
– append
– where “department_id > 7”
– outdir java_files
bash: --: command not found…

Try to execute the command in full proper way.
