Tableau has partnered with Cloudera who developed the Hive ODBC connector we rely on. Without Cloudera, we could not have developed our Hadoop Hive connector this quickly, if at all. Our partnership with Cloudera also gives us an avenue for investigating customer-reported issues which may arise within the driver or Hive itself.
We have only tested Tableau with the Cloudera Distribution including Apache Hadoop (CDH). I do not know if you will have any degree of success in using Tableau with any other distribution. Tableau will not offer customer support for any issues specific to the Hadoop Hive connector when using any distribution other than Cloudera's.
I am still confused how to actually get the connector up and running. Please advise...

this is an old post, but still relevant. Have you looked at passing the job queue information (as part of initial sql) using the cloudera connector.
I can connect to my cloudera hadoop cluster (hiveServer2) on kerberos authentication but all my jobs can only run on the default queue. If i try specifying the queue , like i would with hive it just ignores that and still uses the default queue. Wondering if somene has managed to overcome that...
