Error occurred when I tested Yellowfin + Impala ODBC


I tested Yellowfin BI + Impala ODBC with my qurry and error occurred.

However it works well with Hive ODBC + Yellowfin BI.


Here's the detail.


* Version -

Impala 2.1.1
Hive 0.13.1


* SQL Querry

SELECT DISTINCT

"prop_element_mat"."mat_name",

AVG("prop_element_mat"."thickness")

FROM "default"."prop_element_mat"

GROUP BY

"prop_element_mat"."mat_name"



Does Yollowfin BI support Impala 2.1.1 ??


Hi Daehwan,

sorry for the long delay in responding to this forum post, this one definitely "slipped through the cracks" as it were!

Whilst we haven't specifically tested YF against Impala 2.1.1, I can tell you that last year we had a client who was doing a lot of work with YF connected to Impala via ODBC connection (although it was version 1.2.4) and they seemed pleased with the results.

Please keep in mind that because the ODBC connection is configured in your operating system, Yellowfin will simply use this connection as a generic ODBC connection and will not detect the connection as Hive/Impala, so it will allow all capabilities. Thus it may be possible that functionality is exposed in the Yellowfin UI that is not supported by Impala itself.

I hope that helps, and apologies again for the long delay.

regards,
Dave
