Impala editor fails silently after SAML SSO session times out

When you run a query from an Impala editor in Hue, the Impala editor may silently fail without displaying an error message. As a result, you may not see any action on the screen after submitting your query. This happens if Hue is configured with SAML authentication and you run a query from a browser session that has remained open for a period longer than the SSO maximum session time set by the SAML Identity Provider.

Workaround: If you do not see any action on the Impala editor after submitting the query, refresh the page on your browser.

sudo apt install python-psycopg2==2.7.5
or install python-psycopg2 package using pip by running the following command:
sudo pip install psycopg2==2.7.5

Hue limitation after upgrading from CDH to CDP Private Cloud Base
