New Contributor

I have a dataflow and in this dataflow i generate an avro schema from the processor avroinferschema, and my doubt is how can i resgiter in hive metastore this avro.avsc, i need to integrate a schema evolution between avro and hive, also i found a nifi service : avro schema registry, but I do not know how it is used?

Hi @Daggers 

You can store avro schema file in HDFS folder and point that folder for your hive table ..There is avro.schema.url property with value can be passed while Hive creating the table ..This solution works for versioning the avro schema file in HDFS for the respective table. You can explore schema registry as well
