Redirect some Impala queries to HiveServer2

Redirect some Impala queries to HiveServer2

New Contributor

I am using CDH 5. Though, most of my queries can be executed via Impala, I have some use cases where I need to use Hive UDAF/UDTFs which are currently not supported by Impala as of now. 

 

In this case, I don't want the user to open Beeswax in a separate window. 

 

Is there a way I can redirect some of my queries written in the Impala editor to HiveServer2 and get results back. 

 

(My logic for analysing queries meant for Hive, is looking out for UDAF/UDTFs names in the queries.)

Re: Redirect some Impala queries to HiveServer2

No, currently the user need to pick either the Hive or Impala App.

I would recommend to ask the Impala Team to see how/when your UDF could be
made compatible.
