Advanced Properties for a Hive Metastore Database

Advanced Properties for a Hive Metastore Database

If you want to use a relational database on the cloud platform as the Hive metastore database for the cluster, you must set cluster configuration properties in the Software Setting property of the Create Cluster task.
Configure the Create Cluster task to set configuration properties in the hive-site.xml configuration file on the cluster. Use a text file to specify hive-site settings, and specify the path to the file in the Software Settings property.
Create the following properties in the Software Settings property file:
JDBC connection string for the data store.
JDBC driver class name for the data store. Specify a JDBC driver that is compatible with the cloud platform.
User name to use to connect to the database.
Password for the database user account.
The following text shows sample configuration of the Software Settings property file:
{ "Classification":"hive-site", "Properties":{ "javax.jdo.option.ConnectionURL":"jdbc:mysql:\/\/<RDS_HOST>:<PORT>\/<USER_SCHEMA>?createDatabaseIfNotExist=true", "javax.jdo.option.ConnectionDriverName":"<JDBC driver name>", "javax.jdo.option.ConnectionUserName":"<USER>", "javax.jdo.option.ConnectionPassword":"<USER>" } }
For example,
{ "Classification":"hive-site", "Properties":{ "javax.jdo.option.ConnectionURL":"jdbc:mysql:\/\/<host name>:<port number>\/hive?createDatabaseIfNotExist=true", "javax.jdo.option.ConnectionDriverName":"org.mariadb.jdbc.Driver", "javax.jdo.option.ConnectionUserName":"hive", "javax.jdo.option.ConnectionPassword":"hive" } }
