Hue user cannot load data into Hive via Sqoop 1
[ Edited ]

Hi All,


I am trying to load data from SQL Server into Hive in Hue using Sqoop 1. The following statement is working:


import --connect jdbc:sqlserver://xxx:1433;database=INFA_SOURCE --username infa_source --password B1source --table Personen -m 1

However when I add --hive-import it's not working any more. There are two jobs running and both have status succeeded, but workflow is in status killed. In the log file of first job I can see that there is a failure at the end, but it's not specified what exactly failed:


2018-01-09 10:59:10,544 [main] INFO  org.apache.sqoop.manager.SqlManager  - Executing SQL statement: SELECT t.* FROM [Personen] AS t WHERE 1=0
2018-01-09 10:59:10,569 [main] INFO  org.apache.sqoop.hive.HiveImport  - Loading uploaded data into Hive

<<< Invocation of Sqoop command completed <<<

Hadoop Job IDs executed by Sqoop: job_1515423392261_0009

Intercepting System.exit(1)

<<< Invocation of Main class completed <<<

Failing Oozie Launcher, Main class [org.apache.oozie.action.hadoop.SqoopMain], exit code [1]

Oozie Launcher failed, finishing Hadoop job gracefully

As the same statement works via command line, I think the issue is with Hue user that doesn't have access to /user/hive/warehouse folder, because of a sticky bit.


I found information about enabling security with Sentry, but I am not sure if that's really the issue and if this could be a solution?.


I have mainly two questions:

- Can I remove sticky bit to test the --hive-import with no issues and then bring it back?

- If the issue is with priviledges, is Sentry a possible solution?


Please let me know if you see here another problem or how else I could check it :)
