Hue 3.7 with Sentry App and new Search widgets is out!

Hi Big Data Surfers,

The Hue Team is glad to release Hue 3.7 and its new Sentry App and improved Search App!

A tarball is available as well as documentation and release notes. On top of shipping a brand new app, this release is particularly feature-packed. This is possible with all the good feedback and requests that we are receiving!

Download 3.7.1 tarball


Here is a list of the main improvements:



  • New Sentry App
  • Bulk edit roles and privileges
  • Visualize/edit roles and privileges on a database tree
  • Impersonate a user to see which databases and table he can see
  • More details here…







  • Bulk suspend/kill/resume actions on dashboards
  • Faster dashboards
  • Rerun failed coordinator instances in bulk
  • More details here…


Job Browser

Kill application button for YARN


File Browser




Kerberos support. Next step will be impersonation!



Pickup the configured Zookeeper and give a hint if pointing to the wrong Solr. Useful for installing examples in one click.


Hive / Impala




We are also trying to make the Hue project easier to develop:



What’s next?

Next planned features will bring a new and elegant Oozie Workflow Editor, faster performances and High Availability (HA), a surprise app, a simpler Spark App, more integration with Sentry and Search, and tons of polishing and ironing.

As usual, feel free to comment and send feedback on the hue-user list or @gethue!

    Could you provide a tarball download link for with 3.7.1 version?

    • Hue Team 2 years ago

      We don’t have a 3.7.1 🙂 What are you missing/referring to?

      • Inza9hi 2 years ago

        I found there is a release tag:3.7.1 at the github.

        In my case, the 3.7.0 can not work with hive 0.12
        So I want to check the 3.7.1
        I should build the 3.7.1 myself, but building needs JDK 1.7, our system is running on JDK1.6
        I am not sure if there will be problem that buiding and running under the different JDK
        Hence I request.

    Dropbox is blocked, is there another source for the tarball?

    Thanks but this is the source package, are binaries available?

    • Hue Team 2 years ago

      This is the release package, you still need to compile some parts as C is platform dependent.

      We recommend that you instead use the CDH packages instead, if you are looking for ready to use packages.

    Do you have a compiled version for RHEL6 available for download (not on Dropbox)? What dependencies would we need to build the binaries for RHEL6 if we had to do it ourselves?

      Which version are you using? Have you compiled it yourself? What’s your system/python version?
