Configure Glue as the Hive Metastore

Configure Glue as the Hive Metastore

You can configure Amazon Glue as the Hive metastore with an Amazon EMR 5.29 or 6.1 cluster.
To enable integration with an EMR cluster with Glue, copy .jar files from the cluster to the domain, and then enable the Hive metastore setting in the hive-site.xml configuration before you create the cluster configuration.
Consider the following rules and guidelines:
  • Glue does not support Hive transactions.
  • Amazon supports Glue only when the EMR cluster is not Kerberos enabled.


We’d like to hear from you!
