Using Hue for query authoring with Hadoop on Azure HDInsight

Tools for query authoring in HDInsight


HDInsight provides many options for our customers to enable querying a Hadoop cluster. On either Windows or Linux, you can use ODBC, Visual Studio, Command Line (CLI on windows, SSH on Linux), .Net SDK or PowerShell. Customers often want a web application to author and submit queries. On Windows we already have a Query Console which is used quite extensively by our customers. Query Console however is not available for Linux. We are announcing Hue – an open source query authoring application for HDInsight on Linux. Read the instructions below for more details.


What is Hue?


Hue is a set of Web applications used to interact with a Hadoop cluster. You can use Hue to browse the storage associated with a Hadoop cluster (WASB, in the case of HDInsight clusters), run Hive jobs and Pig scripts, etc. The following components are supported with Hue installation on an HDInsight Hadoop cluster.


  • Beeswax Hive Editor
  • Pig
  • Metastore manager
  • Oozie
  • FileBrowser (talks to WASB default container)
  • Job Browser
