Transparent Encryption Recommendations for Sqoop

There are various recommendations to consider when configuring HDFS Transparent Encryption for Sqoop.


  • For Hive support: Ensure that you are using Sqoop with the --target-dir parameter set to a directory that is inside the Hive encryption zone.
  • For append/incremental support: Make sure that the sqoop.test.import.rootDir property points to the same encryption zone as the --target-dir argument.
  • For HCatalog support: No special configuration is required.
