Enabling the Phoenix SQL editor in Hue

To query Apache HBase tables from Hue using Phoenix SQL, configure the Phoenix interpreter settings in the Hue Advanced Configuration Snippet.

Add {USER} to the HBASE (cm_hbase) Ranger policy that governs access to all tables, columns, column-family, and so on. Grant {USER} the required permissions such as read, write, create, execute, admin, and so on.

  1. Log in to Cloudera Manager as an Administrator.
  2. Go to Clusters > Hue > Configuration and add the following lines in the Hue Service Advanced Configuration Snippet (Safety Valve) for hue_safety_valve.ini field:
    [notebook]
    [[interpreters]]
    [[[phoenix]]]
    name=phoenix
    interface=sqlalchemy
    options='{"url": "[***PHOENIX-URL***]:[***PHOENIX-PORT***]/"}'
  3. Click Save Changes.
  4. Restart the Hue service.
