Connecting Hive to BI tools using a JDBC/ODBC driver in Data Hub

To query, analyze, and visualize data stored in CDP, you use drivers provided by Cloudera to connect Apache Hive to Business Intelligence (BI) tools.

How you connect to Hive depends on a number of factors: the location of Hive inside or outside the cluster, the HiveServer deployment, the type of transport, transport-layer security, and authentication. HiveServer is the server interface that enables remote clients to run queries against Hive and retrieve the results using a JDBC or ODBC connection.
  • Choose a Hive authorization model.
  • Configure authenticated users for querying Hive through JDBC or ODBC driver. For example, set up a Ranger policy.
