Disable an Application in the Hue Interface (optional)

If you want to disable an application (such as Impala), follow these steps:
  1. In the [desktop] section of the hue.ini file, uncomment the # app_blacklist= statement and insert the name of the app you want to disable (impala in this example).
    Note: Do not remove search from the app_blacklist. The Hue UI will not work if the search application is enabled.
    # Comma-separated list of apps not to load at server startup.
    # Note that rdbms is the name used for dbquery.
    app_blacklist=spark,zookeeper,search,impala,sqoop,rdbms
    Note: After removing an application from app_blacklist, you must update the Hue internal database to create the tables required for the application that was enabled:
    sudo /opt/mapr/server/configure.sh -R
  2. Once all changes are made, restart Hue so the changes will take effect.
    Note: You can re-enable a blacklisted application at any time, and then restart Hue.
    maprcli node services -name hue -action restart -nodes <ip_address>
