Connect to Hive from Python using HiveServer2 JDBC string

Connect to Hive from Python using HiveServer2 JDBC string

New Contributor

I am currently using PyHive python package to connect to Hive. When using this package I am not able to provide HiveServer2 JDBC string as the host. I can only provide one host name.


Is there a way to connect to Hive from Python using the JDBC string? Does any other Python package allow that? Please provide samples.

Current code:



from pyhive import hive

hive_conn = hive.Connection(host=hive_host, configuration {'serviceDiscoveryMode':'zooKeeper','zooKeeperNamespace':'hiveserver2'})



Also tried using pyodbc but could not figure out the correct driver for Hortonworks Hadoop distribution.
Need a working code for Linux distribution
