Using Google Cloud Storage with Hue

Hue can read to and write to Google Cloud Storage (GS) buckets.

Hue offers you the capability to browse GS buckets, upload files to GS, and create tables by importing files from GS. Using Ranger Authorization Service (RAZ), you can grant fine-grained access to per-user home directories and other directories within the GS bucket using Ranger policies.

Hue administrators can create home directories for users by selecting the Create home directory option on the user's profile in Hue. If fine-grained authorization is enabled to access GS buckets, then user home directories are automatically created when a user logs into Hue. You can disable the automatic creation of user directories.
