Resolved Issues


Known Issues and Limitations

  • Hue 4.6 is not compatible with FIPS-enabled setup.
  • HPE Ezmeral Data Fabric does not support the integration between Hue 4.6.0 and the following components:
    • Solr Search
    • ZooKeeper
  • MHUE-209 Hue cannot create a table from a *.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.
