How to use HUE in Oracle VM VirtualBox HDP2.6

New Contributor

I am new to HDP. Downloaded and going thru the Getting Started Tutorial. How do I access HUE?

yum list | grep hue --> shows several packages.

Using the ip-addr from ifconfig and port 8080 did not work.

2 Questions:

1. Is it already preconfigured to run?

2. If not, how do I configure?

I tried the configure "Hue to work with Hadoop"..but doc was insufficient in the document : when trying to add Property for hadoop.proxyuser.hue.groups.. what should the key/values be?

Hi @Vamsi N

the Sandbox comes pre-configured with Apache Ambari, and the Ambari Views. You may want to consider using the views first since they are already installed, available, and well documented for HDP. I don't believe Hue is pre-installed/configured, but, the ports likely be 1111 depending on what you configure during the installation.

If you want to install Hue yourself on HDP 2.6.x, I believe the instructions can be found at the following location:

Sonu,

I could access Hive/Query etc using Views. But cannot find a link to explore HDFS views in Ambari. Where is that view?

Hi @Vamsi N

the "Files" view in Ambari Views is a file explorer for HDFS. You should see it in the dropdown for the views. If you don't see it under the Ambari account you are using, you can use the instructions that Jay has above to add an instance of the Files view.

@Vamsi N

Regarding your query: "But cannot find a link to explore HDFS views in Ambari."

You can use the HDFS "File View".

Ambari UI --> "Manage Ambari" --> "Views" --> FILES --> Click on "Create Instance"

.

Regarding Hue view, You can also find the "HUE TO AMBARI Migration" View in ambari.

Ambari UI --> "Manage Ambari" --> "Views" --> HUETOAMBARI_MIGRATION --> Click on "Create Instance"

For more information please see: https://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/Ambari-2.4.2.0/bk_ambari-views/content/creating_a_htv_inst...

The proxy users settings can be set to * means allow every group and request from every host. (or you can use a comma separated list of hostsnames/groups as well in the respective properties)

hadoop.proxyuser.hue.groups=*
hadoop.proxyuser.hue.hosts=*

.
