Configure Hue

Hue is the open source UI that interacts with Apache Hadoop and its ecosystem components.

After you install Hue, perform the following steps to configure Hue:

  1. Complete the general configuration steps. This includes integrating Hue with JobTracker, ResourceManager, and HttpFS.
  2. Perform the steps to integrate each additional component that you want to use with Hue.
    • Hive
    • HBase or MapR-DB
    • Impala
    • Oozie
    • Spark
    • Sqoop2
You may also want to do the following:
  • Configure Security
  • Configure DB Query
  • Configure Hue Interface Authentication
Note: The hue.ini file is the main configuration file for running Hue on a cluster. This file is located at /opt/mapr/hue/hue-<version>/desktop/conf/hue.ini. When you update the value of a property in the hue.ini, remove any hashes (##) that appear directly before the property name. You must also restart Hue for these changes to take effect.
