Apache Atlas Hive hook and data lineage troubleshooting


I run Atlas 0.8 on HDInsight 3.5 and would like to take advantage of Hive Hook. I've made all the necessary configurations as described in the documentation. . Then I follow a simple tutorial and create two table brancha and branchb and third one CTAS branch_intersect as a result of a join between those two.

Anyhow, I expect the tables to show up in the catalog but they don't. My question is how do I troubleshoot that kind of issue? Where to look?

When I execute, the tables are imported but without data lineage. Does anyone have a clue on how to troubleshoot those issues?

Any ideas appreciated:)



Ok, I've got this exception, AtlasBaseException after running

I had same issue and it has been resolved by adding extra kafka brokers (I had one and made it 3). Big thanks to @Ronak bansal for the solution "Either install 3 kafka brokers or change offsets.topic.replication.factor=1 in kafka and restart kafka + atlas"



I am facing the same issue.

Data are imported but no lineage is found even if it should appear.


Any hint about the solution?
