In configuring an Apache NiFi Data Flow (within Hortonworks Dataflow) I ran in to the need to configure the Hive Streaming component to connect to a Hive Table, this personal knowledge base article documents the the locations of the resources I needed.
What is my Hive Metastore URI?
This is located on your Hive Metastore host at port 9083 and uses the Thrift protocol, an example URI would look like this:
Where is my hive-site.xml file located? What should I enter under Hive Config Resources?
When configuring Apache NiFi to connect to a Hive table using Hive Streaming you will need to enter the location of your hive-site.xml file under Hive config resources. Below you can see the location in my hadoop node, to find the location in your installation look under directory /etc/hive the script below can help you with this:
#find the Hive folder cd /etc/hive #run a search for the hive-site.xml file, starting at the current location find . -name hive-site.xml #in my case after examining the results from the command the file is located at: /etc/hive/126.96.36.199-292/0/hive-site.xml
