Create Hue dashboard from HBase Table

Create Hue dashboard from HBase Table

New Contributor

Hi All,

I am a newbie in Hue. I have a HBase table I would like to use for some analytics. Is there a way to connect it to Hue Dashboard?

Thanks,

Francesco

You will need to configure hue with credentials and information for hbase:

 

[hbase]
  # Comma-separated list of HBase Thrift servers for clusters in the format of '(name|host:port)'.
  # Use full hostname. If hbase.thrift.ssl.enabled in hbase-site is set to true, https will be used otherwise it will use http
  # If using Kerberos we assume GSSAPI SASL, not PLAIN.
  ## hbase_clusters=(Cluster|localhost:9090)

  # HBase configuration directory, where hbase-site.xml is located.
  ## hbase_conf_dir=/etc/hbase/conf

  # Hard limit of rows or columns per row fetched before truncating.
  ## truncate_limit = 500

  # Should come from hbase-site.xml, do not set. 'framed' is used to chunk up responses, used with the nonblocking server in Thrift but is not supported in Hue.
  # 'buffered' used to be the default of the HBase Thrift Server. Default is buffered when not set in hbase-site.xml.
  ## thrift_transport=buffered

  # Choose whether Hue should validate certificates received from the server.
  ## ssl_cert_ca_verify=true

 

Once you have the configuration working, you should be able to view hbase within the UI.

Hi @stevenmatison ,

thank you for your reply.

I already view HBase table in the UI. Maybe my previous question was not very clear. What I meant was, is there a way to use a HBase table as a data source for Hue Dashboard?

Thank you,

Francesco

@Francesco_Fa   If you do not want to use embedded sqlite, the options available for this are:

  1. Mysql
  2. Postgres
  3. Oracle
