Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-5627) Document 'usehcatalog' parameter on WebHCat calls
Date Sat, 09 Nov 2013 19:04:17 GMT


Eugene Koifman commented on HIVE-5627:

For the Pig call I would add the following:
" If '-useHCatalog' is included in the 'arg' parameter, then 'usehcatalog' is interpreted
as true."

Othewrwise it looks fine.  Thanks!

>                 URL:
>             Project: Hive
>          Issue Type: Sub-task
>          Components: Documentation, WebHCat
>    Affects Versions: 0.12.0
>            Reporter: Eugene Koifman
>            Assignee: Lefty Leverenz
>             Fix For: 0.13.0
> The following REST calls in WebHCat:
> 1. mapreduce/jar
> 2. pig
> now support an additional parameter 'usehcatalog'.  This is a mechanism for the caller
to tell WebHCat that the submitted job uses HCat, and thus needs to access the metastore,
which requires additional steps for WebHCat to perform in a secure cluster.  
> The JavaDoc on corresponding methods in  org.apache.hive.hcatalog.templeton.Server describe
this parameter.  
> Additionally, if templeton.hive.archive, templeton.hive.home and templeton.hcat.home
are defined in webhcat-site.xml (documented in webhcat-default.xml) then WebHCat will ship
the Hive tar to the target node where the job actually runs.  This means that Hive doesn't
need to be installed on every node in the Hadoop cluster.  (This part was added in HIVE-5547).
 This is independent of security, but improves manageability.
> This should be added to the sections in
that correspond to these methods.
