Hi All,

 

When we use MySQL 8 for HUE DB we get the below error

 What causes this error?

 

MySQL 8 supports a new authentication method based on improved stronger SH256-based password methods. When you install MySQL 8, this is the new default authentication method (although this can be changed during MySQL server installation).

As MySQL 8 is still relatively new, depending upon your Perl environment, Perl itself (or rather the driver that Perl uses to connect to a MySQL server) may not yet be compatible with the new authentication method in MySQL 8. When this occurs, an "Authentication plugin 'caching_sha2_password' cannot be loaded" error is produced.

 

How to fix this error?

 

To resolve this error, and revert your MySQL server back to using "legacy" authentication, you'll need to login to your MySQL server and issue the following command:

ALTER USER 'yourusername'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED WITH mysql_native_password BY 'yourpassword';

(where "yourusername" is the MySQL user account you specified your HUE service to use, and "yourpassword" is the corresponding MySQL user account password)

 

 

Solution :

1) alter user 'hue'@'%' IDENTIFIED WITH mysql_native_password BY 'HUEUSERPASSWORD'; 

 

OR

 

2)  You can update your MySQL configuration to use: [mysqld] default_authentication_plugin=mysql_native_password Then alter the user to use "mysql_native_password" with the following sql statement (for the hue MySQL user you created): #ALTER USER 'user'@'host' IDENTIFIED WITH mysql_native_password BY 'password';
