Unable to connect to hive tables via excel using cloudera hive odbc

I am new to big data stuff and I am trying to access hive tables existing in Cloudera from excel. I think I am doing some mistakes in Apache Hive DSN setup settings in windows.

In the authentication section, I don't know what to select for "Mechanism". There are many options available

 

I am getting the error as mentioned in the image attached. I also attached my hive-config.xml. Maybe I am missing something in the file. Please let me know.

  <!-- Hive Configuration can either be stored in this file or in the hadoop configuration files  -->
  <!-- that are implied by Hadoop setup variables.                                                -->
  <!-- Aside from Hadoop setup variables - this file is provided as a convenience so that Hive    -->
  <!-- users do not have to edit hadoop configuration files (that may be managed as a centralized -->
