Is Hue installed as a part of HDP 2.0 thru Ambari ?

  • #42877

    I wanted the GUI interface that the sandbox offered, I was assuming Hue will be installed as a part of HDP2.0 stack thru ambari, But doesnt look like.
    Is this true ? Do I manually need to install Hue? is not included on HDP2.0 install thru ambari ?

    No, HUE needs to be installed manually.
    You need to make the configurations to the clusters xml files for HUE within Ambari as you follow the HUE installation instructions.

    I’ve followed the instructions to manually install hue on HDP2 (I use CentOS 6.4, & my cluster is up and running).

    # yum install hue
    No package hue available
    Error: Nothing to do

    [Okay, my linux admin skills aren’t that strong]
    Where do we find this package for HDP2?

    1. // was hoping to find a package rather than build it. Is this event the right project? And is it up to date HDP2?

    2. HDP2 Sandbox shows another package
    #yum repolist
    hue-bigtop Hue repository
    // Is this the package we need?
    [Sorry, how do I yum this package?]

    3. What is the correct package for HDP2?
