Business Metadata in Navigator & Hive Metastore for Hive Tables

Business Metadata in Navigator & Hive Metastore for Hive Tables

Explorer

Hello

 

Does the Business Metadata that we add in Cloudera Navigator for Hive tables accessible from Hive Meta store?

 

If yes, how to make Hive metastore show these custom metadata from Navigator.

If no, can this be a feature add in future releases? it would make sense to have all metadata in sync (Business & Technical) in both places.

We did a quick test - 

 

The description/comments added at Table and Column level in Hive Metastore are pulled into Navigator when the refresh happens.

 

But, vice versa, is not - e.g. when you add metadata to Navigator, it doesn't get refreshed in Hive Metastore. Why?
