- What is being requested:
Support in the ODBC / JDBC Hive driver to connect using the HTTP port
- Reason for request:
Customers who want to access the Hive using the Knox Gateway cannot access it using the Knox Gateway, as the connections through the Knox are channelled over the HTTPs.
- Also, several other drivers for the Hive that come along with the distributions like the HDP support this functionality. Lack of this functionality in the Progress Driver for Hive would be a major deterrent for asking the customers to use the Progress Datadirect Driver for Hive to connect to various distributions of the Hive.
- Possible workarounds:
-- Importance / criticality of this enhancement
Hi, this feature actually is crucial to our deployment. My company recently bought the Datadirect connect product. And we allow the incoming traffic through KNOX. Without this, we have to change our architectural design
We need this as well. Will Knox functionality be added soon?
Support for HTTP/Knox was added to the JDBC driver in the Connect for JDBC for Apache Hadoop Hive 6.0.0 release.
