Creating a connection to Hive

You can create a connection to Hive directly from the connection you defined for the Hadoop distribution. However, you can proceed differently and create the connection to Hive simultaneously while you create an analysis on HDFS file as outlined in Creating a connection to an HDFS file.

Before you begin

You have selected the Profiling perspective.

You have created a connection to the Hadoop distribution.


  1. In the DQ Repository tree view, right-click the Hadoop connection to be used and select Create Hive to open a wizard.
    Contextual menu of a Hadoop connection.
  2. Follow the steps in the wizard to create the connection, and click Check at the last step to verify if the connection is successful.
  3. Click Finish.


The new Hive connection is listed under the Hadoop Cluster and the DB connections nodes in the DQ Repository tree view.
New Hive connection under the Metadata node.
