Hive Database Connection Details for Tableau using Username & Password

New Contributor
I am working from the Hue Editor (https://demo.gethue.com/hue/accounts/login?next=/) and I want to connect to Tableau for visualizations.

However, there is no place within the GUI where I can simply copy and paste connection details.

How can I find the connection details in order to allow Tableau to connect to these databases?

Tableau is requesting the following details:

Server

Port

 

If your suggestion involves Beeline or Hive CLI, please include steps for windows implementation as I have had no luck in accessing either.

In my understanding, you want to connect Tableu to CDP.

 

You need to use ODBC driver .Please follow below document

Yes correct I want to connect Hive to Tableau. However, I do not have the admin access to the Hive environment, only to the GUI. 

Is it possible to get the server name, etc without access to admin links/directories?

Could you please explain in brief ?
