Resolved Issues

  • MHUE-470: Hue does not start because of wrong permissions in the metrics file.
  • MHUE-480: ZooKeeper connection type does not work for Drill.
  • MHUE-484: The which breaks Hue on Ubuntu 18.04.

Known Issues and Limitations

  • HPE does not support the integration between Hue 4.6.0 and the following components:
    • Solr Search
    • ZooKeeper
  • Integration between Hue 4.6.0 and Sentry 1.7 is supported on secure clusters that use Kerberos authentication, but it is not supported on secure clusters that use MapR-SASL authentication.
  • MHUE-209 Hue cannot create a table from *.csv file via importer from ADLS.
  • Hue uses python parquet lib to read parquet files. This library does not support all possible parquet formats.
  • When the [notebook] section of the hue.ini contains a Drill entry that precedes the Hive entry, the Table Browser uses the Drill back end. This can be turned off by changing the force_hs2_metadata=true setting in the [metastore] section of the hue.ini file.
NOTE In Hue 4.3.0-1912, support for the integration of Drill with the Table Browser in Hue was added as an experimental feature.
