How to import metadata from Hive into Atlas? And the atlas offcial guide maybe have wrong.

avatar

After built Atlas, I just only set the ATLAS_HOME_DIR in atlas-env.sh, and other settings, in atlas-env.sh and atlas-application.properties, are default.

I try to import metadata according http://atlas.apache.org/Bridge-Hive.html

After set $HIVE_CONF_DIR, I found that I can't set following configuration in atlas-application.properties.

<property>

	<name>atlas.cluster.name</name>

	<value>primary</value>

</property>

This is a XML style code, but the atlas-application.properties is not XML style, so I can't add this.

I am wondering if the official guide of atlas is not accurate?

Then I skip this setting, run import-hive.sh. It showed following:

Exception in thread "main" org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.metadata.HiveException: java.lang.RuntimeException: 
Unable to instantiate org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.metadata.SessionHiveMetaStoreClient
Caused by: java.lang.RuntimeException: Unable to instantiate org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.metadata.SessionHiveMetaStoreClient

Caused by: org.datanucleus.store.rdbms.connectionpool.DatastoreDriverNotFoundException: The specified datastore driver ("com.mysql.jdbc.Driver") was not found in the CLASSPATH. Please check your CLASSPATH specification, and the name of the driver.

in order to import metadata into Atlas, what could I do next ?

Looks like hive metastore is using mysql in your case, add the mysql client jar to <atlas package>/bridge/hive/. That should work.

Ideally, import-hive.sh should use hive classpath so that all hive dependencies are included. Currently, we bundle hive dependencies as well and hence this issue if hive uses non-default driver.

Details: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ATLAS-96

Hope this helps.

Thanks and Regards,

I never find the mysql client jar, but I try to add the mysql-connector-java-5.1.38-bin.jar to <atlas package>/bridge/hive/ (Is the mysql-connector-java-5.1.38-bin.jar same as mysql client jar ?),

it showed different error:

Failed to import Hive Data Model!!!

Add atlas.rest.address=<Atlas-host>:<port> property to atlas-application.properties and try to run the import script.

@Ethan Hsieh, Can you confirm if you are able to successfully execute "show databases;" in hive shell.

Looks like you don't have a mysql-connector jar in $HIVE_HOME/lib. Please place the connector in hive lib and try to run the import script.

Thank you very much. It import metadata successfully.

But there have other questions.

1. When I visit localhost:21000 and I click the hive_table imported, it show that No lineage data found. In my opinion, this hive table was imported from hive to atlas, so it should show the lineage between hive and atlas. But it showed nothing. How to let it show lineage data?

2. I try to configure the Hive Hook according official guide and (1)set "hive.exec.post.hooks" and "atlas.cluster.name" in hive-site.xml. (2)Add 'export HIVE_AUX_JARS_PATH=<atlas package>/hook/hive' in hive-env.sh. (3)Copy <atlas-conf>/atlas-application.properties to the hive conf directory.

After these configure, I type "hive" to enter the hive CLI and try to create a hive table, but it showed that

hive.exec.post.hooks Class not found:org.apache.atlas.hive.hook.HiveHook

1. When you import metadata from an already existing hive tables, it does not show lineage because hive does not provide these details to Atlas. If you want to see lineage in action, create table as select.

For example: Open hive cli and create below tables

create table sample (name String);
create table sample_ctas as select * from sample;

2. After setting the mentioned configuration, did you restart your hivemetastore and hiveserver2? This should solve issue.

Let me know if you are still facing the issue. Happy to help!!

Hi,@Ayub Khan,

I opened the hive CLI, and executed what you said below, it shown as following:

hive> create table sample (name String);
OK
Time taken: 0.92 seconds
hive> create table sample_ctas as select * from sample;
Query ID = hadoop_20160624135004_3a9c1e30-1c10-4433-bb58-7408471a0fd9

It showed that I successfully create a table through CTAS.

And then, I run {ATLAS_HOME}/bin/import-hive.sh.

After it succeed, I visited http://localhost:21000, and found the table sample_cats, but these is still no lineage data.

@Ayub Pathan

These issues still exist. And I post the descriptions in the last answer, please check/
