    We are getting an error when we are trying to convert a column from hex value to dec value with DeciHexConversion function below. Any ideas on what we need to configure to make this available in HDP 1.3.2?

    hive> add jar /tmp/catalogfiles/Conversion.jar;
    hive> create temporary function conversion as ‘DeciHexConversion’;
    hive> select dev.DeviceServiceTag, si.deviceid, si.componentid, si.hwdeviceid, si.hwvendorid, si.hwsubdeviceid, si.hwsubvendorid, sc.component_description, sc.criticality_display, sc.criticality_value, sc.vendorVersion, si.SoftwareVersion, os_src.OSNAME, os_src.OSREVISION, os_src.ISWINDOWS, si.HWDESCRIPTION, si.SOFTWARETYPE,si.SOFTWAREDESCRIPTION, sc.component_type, sc.informational_url, sc.path, sc.packagetype from customer_softwareinventory si

    Hi Alex,

    Have you tried put the jar in HIVE_AUX_JARS_PATH?
