Enabling access to the Viz application from Hue

Cloudera Data Visualization enables you to explore data and communicate insights across the whole data lifecycle by using visual objects. If you have created a Virtual Warehouse with the Enable Data Visualization option enabled, then you can configure an embedded link to the Viz application in the Hue web interface.

Required role: DWAdmin
  1. Log in to the CDP web interface and navigate to the Data Warehouse service.
  2. On the Overview page under Virtual Warehouses, click the options menu for a Virtual Warehouse and click Edit.
  3. On the Virtual Warehouses details page, go to CONFIGURATIONS > Hue and select hue-safety-valve from the dropdown list.
  4. Add the following lines in the safety valve:
    [desktop]
      custom_dashboard_url=[***DATA-VIZ-URL***]
    Specify the complete URL of the Viz app in the custom_dashboard_url property.
  5. Click APPLY.
    The Virtual Warehouse restarts to apply the changes.
  6. After the Virtual Warehouse is in the running state, refresh the Hue web interface.
