Step 5: Configure Hue for HBase

To configure Hue for HBase, edit the hbase section of the hue.ini file, which looks like this:
[hbase]
  # Comma-separated list of HBase Thrift servers for
  # clusters in the format of '(name|host:port)'.
  ## hbase_clusters=(Cluster|localhost:9090)

  # Hard limit of rows or columns per row fetched before truncating.
  ## truncate_limit = 500

In this file, make the following changes:

  1. Uncomment the ## hbase_clusters=(Cluster|localhost:9090) statement and provide the list of HBase thrift servers.
    hbase_clusters=(<clustername1>|<hostname1>:9090),(<clustername2>|<hostname2>:9090)[,...]
  2. Uncomment the truncate_limit statement and change the value if necessary.
