Collecting Schema Information for a HIVE External Table

Original Slack Thread

Hi, I have a question.

Is there any way to collect schema information of a HIVE external table?
I am getting the column information with the following error.

“Unable to get column information due to error -> too many values to decompress (estimate 3)”

Hey there! :wave: Make sure your message includes the following information if relevant, so we can help more effectively!

  1. Are you using UI or CLI for ingestion?
  2. Which DataHub version are you using? (e.g. 0.12.0)
  3. What data source(s) are you integrating with DataHub? (e.g. BigQuery)
  1. UI
  2. v0.13.1
  3. hive

It should support external tables.
Please, can you post the full error message


Thank you for your response.

I tried with impala port instead of hive port when ingesting metadata, but when I tried again with hive port, it ingested fine.

cool, I’m glad it works
