Use the Hue HBase app

Hue includes an HBase App that allows you to interact with HBase through a Thrift proxy server.

Because Hue sits between the Thrift server and the client, the Thrift server assumes that all HBase operations come from the hue user and not the client. To ensure that users in Hue are only allowed to perform HBase operations assigned to their own credentials, and not those of the hue user, you must enable HBase impersonation. For more information about the how to enable doAs Impersonation for the HBase Browser Application, see Enabling the HBase Browser Application with doAs Impersonation.
