 DataDirect Connect

Request for the ability to use HTTP connections with the Hive ODBC and JDBC drivers

- 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:

None.

  • 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?
