Hive Metastore

Establishing a Hive Metastore connection allows Upsolver to integrate with the Hive ecosystem, enabling you to create, modify, and query tables within Upsolver. These tables can also be queried from other Hive-compatible services and the Upsolver UI.
This documentation assumes that you have created the Amazon S3 connection s3 with proper write permissions to the specified storage location. Refer to Upsolver's documentation on creating an Amazon S3 connection for more details.

Syntax

CREATE HIVE_METASTORE CONNECTION <connection_name>
URI = 'thrift://<hostname>:<port>'

[ DEFAULT_SCHEMA = '<default_schema>' ]
[ USER_NAME = '<username>' ]
[ PASSWORD = '<password>' ]
[ CLIENT_PROPERTIES = ( PROPERTY = 'VALUE' [, ...] ) ]
[ MAX_CONCURRENT_OPERATIONS = <integer> ]
[ DEFAULT_STORAGE_CONNECTION = <storage_connection_identifier> ]
[ DEFAULT_STORAGE_LOCATION = 's3://<bucket>/<prefix>/' ]
