Hive unsupported interfaces and features

You need to know the interfaces available in HDP or CDH platforms that are not supported.

The following interfaces are not supported in CDP Private Cloud Base:

  • Druid
  • Hcat CLI
  • Hive CLI (replaced by Beeline)
  • Hive View
  • LLAP
  • MapReduce execution engine (replaced by Tez)

    Spark and Hive tables interoperate using the Hive Warehouse Connector.

You can use Hue in lieu of Hive View.
