You can use the REST API to Access data in HBase. By default, the HBase rest server is not started. You need to start it first

To start rest server in the foreground

  1. # su hbase
  2. # hbase rest start -p {port to start the server}

To start in the background

  1. # su hbase
  2. # /usr/hdp/current/hbase-master/bin/hbase-daemon.sh start rest -p {port to start the server}

.
