Using Tableau to connect to Spark Standalone instance on CDH5.3.2

Using Tableau to connect to Spark Standalone instance on CDH5.3.2

Hi,

I am trying to connect my Spark standalone instance which is running on a CDH5.3.2 cluster to Tableau 8.3. I guess when you install the stand alone version Spark-sql is not installed either. Has anybody tried to do this? If so, how can I accomplish it too?

 

Thank You

Hi, I am using CDH 5.12.1 . Does anyone know how to connect a desktop ODBC tool like Tableau or Microstrategy or WinSQL to connect to Spark SQL directly instead of via Hive on Spark? Let me know if you are successful and steps to do it. Thanks.
