    Hadoop user Authentication

    Hugh Meagher

      Currently the Tableau connector to Hadoop does not support user authentication. Has anyone had any success using Hadoops own ODBC driver (or any other third party driver for that matter) with Tableau using user authentication.

       

      Thanks

          Hi Hugh,

           

          As Cloudera explicitly acknowledges in their Hive Security Configuration documentation, the Hive service itself is the limiting factor. Future versions of Hadoop and Hive will have to include coordination between the Hive service and the Hadoop security layer, and the Hive ODBC driver will have to support securely collecting credentials from a user. I do not believe that there is a roadmap yet for these improvements, but it is something that many Hadoop Hive users are interested in.
