Apache Hive

Connections to an Apache Hive database are made by selecting Apache Hive from the list of connectors in the QlikView ODBC Connection dialog or the Qlik Sense Add data or Data load editor dialogs.

Database connectors enable QlikView and Qlik Sense to efficiently load data into a Qlik app from a database accessed through a supported ODBC driver, such as Apache Hive. You do not need to create a DSN connection before connecting to an Apache Hive database.

Note: Industry-accepted best practices must be followed when using or allowing access through the ODBC Connector. Administrators must follow The Principle of Least Privilege when setting up source database privileges and permissions.
