Announcing: ODBC Driver Version 2.5.5 for Hive

Master Collaborator

Hello CDH Users,


We are pleased to announce the release of version 2.5.5 of the Cloudera ODBC Driver for Apache Hive.  This version adds:

  • Ability for clients to securely and more easily authenticate with their username and password

  • Ability to secure client traffic via encrypted SSL

  • Ability for multi-tiered applications to proxy via delegation IDs

These drivers work for previous versions of HiveServer2 in CDH 4.1 or higher but the new functionality above is only available in CDH 4.5.
