This is not 100% accurate. First of all, the link you provided is for an old version of CDH, the CDH5.0. Latest CDH5.0 was released on 2015.

The current version is CDH5.14, so the latest list is :


Moreover, Cloudera selects a base version of the components and adds selected patches from Apache, as you can see in the link below ( I provide the CDH5.13 because the latest returns an empty page):

As you can see, there is "hive-1.1.0+cdh5.14.0+1330", which means that CDH's Hive is based on version 1.1.0 plus 1330 patches after that.

So is it possible to integrate druid with Hive on current CDH version? Nevermind if 5.13 or 5.14 is considering..


I think it is not possible, maybe higher version of Hive is needed. But maybe I just made mistake during trying to integrate druid with Hive on CDH 5.14.2.


Any help/information will be appreciated. Thanks!

According to this Druid integration is fixed in Hive 2.2.0.

CDH5 is based on Hive 1.x as mentioned before, and I cannot find the specific patch in the release notes.

Probably CDH6 (which is based on Hive 2.1.0) will support it. We have to wait.
