Load Metadata from Apache Hive
Use the Hive Loader to upload metadata to Alteryx Connect from a specified Hive server.
The Alteryx Connect Loaders must be installed on the machine where Alteryx Server is installed. To install the loaders:
- Download the loaders installer. For compatibility, the Loaders installer version must match the Alteryx Connect version.
- Run the installer as an administrator.
- Hive must be accessible via ODBC:
- Download and install the Hive ODBC driver from the Alteryx Driver Download page.
- Configure and test a new DSN in the Windows ODBC Data Sources Administrator. For more information, see Create an ODBC Database Connection within the Alteryx Designer Help.
If you are unsure about the correct host name and credentials, contact your IT administrator.
For detailed information on connecting to Hive, search for "Connecting to Hadoop" in the Alteryx Community.
