tELTHiveInput Standard properties

These properties are used to configure tELTHiveInput running in the Standard Job framework.

The Standard tELTHiveInput component belongs to the ELT family.

The component in this framework is available in all Talend products with Big Data and in Talend Data Fabric.

Basic settings


A schema is a row description. It defines the number of fields to be processed and passed on to the next component. The schema is either Built-in or stored remotely in the Repository.


Built-In: You create and store the schema locally for this component only.

Repository: You have already created the schema and stored it in the Repository. You can reuse it in various projects and Job designs.

Edit schema

Click Edit schema to make changes to the schema. If the current schema is of the Repository type, three options are available:

  • View schema: choose this option to view the schema only.

  • Change to built-in property: choose this option to change the schema to Built-in for local changes.

  • Update repository connection: choose this option to change the schema stored in the repository and decide whether to propagate the changes to all the Jobs upon completion.

    If you just want to propagate the changes to the current Job, you can select No upon completion and choose this schema metadata again in the Repository Content window.

Default table name

Enter the name of the input table to be used.

Default schema name

Enter the name of the database schema to which the input table to be used is related.

Advanced settings

tStat Catcher Statistics

Select this check box to collect log data at the component level.

Global Variables

Global Variables

ERROR_MESSAGE: the error message generated by the component when an error occurs. This is an After variable and it returns a string. This variable functions only if the Die on error check box is cleared, if the component has this check box.

A Flow variable functions during the execution of a component while an After variable functions after the execution of the component.

To fill up a field or expression with a variable, press Ctrl+Space to access the variable list and choose the variable to use from it.

For more information about variables, see Using contexts and variables.


Usage rule

tELTHiveMap is used along with a tELTHiveInput and tELTHiveOutput. Note that the Output link to be used with these components must correspond strictly to the syntax of the table name.

If Talend Studio used to connect to a Hive database is operated on Windows, you must manually create a folder called tmp in the root of the disk where Talend Studio is installed.

Information noteNote:

The ELT components do not handle actual data flow but only schema information.

Usage with Dataproc

The ELT Hive components require Tez to be installed on the Google Cloud Dataproc cluster to be used.

  • Use the initialization action explained in this Google Cloud Platform documentation: Apache Tez on Dataproc.

  • For more details about the general concept of the initialization actions in a Google Cloud Dataproc cluster, see the related Google documentation: Initialization actions.
