HBase Rest Server's lack of support for namespaces in HDP 2.3-2.5?


According to this JIRA: namespaces support was added in what looks to be versions: 2.0.0, 1.2.0, 1.3.0, 0.98.15 of the HBase REST server.

Is there any way to get access to this in HDP 2.3 - 2.5? All these HDP versions are on HBase 1.1.2.




if you intend to use HDP 2.5.3 you can leverage HBase namespaces as it was backported into that specific release. Same goes with Apache Phoenix, you can use Phoenix schemas (HBase namespace) in Phoenix as well.

@artem thanks for the details, I'm looking for these features with the REST server included with HBase and it apparently lacks thud support. See the HBase upstream Jira I referenced.


Fair enough, I'll raise it up with engineering
