New hive entities after Atlas import

Expert Contributor

Hello

After installing & Configuring Atlas i've successfully imported all hive entities into Atlas using import-hive.sh.
Now all hive entities appear in Atlas.
Maybe i missed this trivial thing - but what happens with new hive entities ?
How exactly should new hive entities such as DBs & tables sync to Atlas ?
Thanks in advance

Re: New hive entities after Atlas import

@Adi Jabkowsky,

New hive entities will be synced automatically if you enable "Hive Atlas Hook" in hive configs. Whenever you create a database or table, a message is posted to kafka topic using hive hooks and the same message is read by atlas and the corresponding entity is created in Atlas.

For testing, you can create a sample database,table and check in Atlas UI
