Hue 3 and the new Sqoop and ZooKeeper apps are out!

Hi Big Data Surfers,

The Hue team is pleased to bring you Hue 3.0, available as a tarball release.

Please see the release notes for more information and the documentation.

Hue 3.0 brings a browser for ZooKeeper and 245 commits. The tech stack was upgraded and a new phase of redesign was performed in order to improve the UX.

Notable Features

  • Sqoop 

    With the Sqoop 2 application data from databases can be easily exported or imported into HDFS in a scalable way. The Job Wizard hides the complexity of creating Sqoop jobs and the dashboard offers a live progress and log access.image

  • ZooKeeper 

    Navigate and browse the Znode hierarchy and content of a Zookeeper cluster. Znodes can be added, deleted and edited.
    Multi-clusters are supported and their various statistics are available.image

  • Shell app is removed and replaced by Pig Editor, HBase Browser and the Sqoop apps. 
  • Python 2.6 is required. 
  • Beeswax daemon is replaced by HiveServer2. 

Notable Fixes

  • HUE-897 [core] Redesign of the overall layout
  • HUE-1521 [core] Improve JT HA
  • HUE-1493 [beeswax] Replace Beeswaxd by HiveServer2
  • HUE-1474 [core] upgrade django from 1.2 to 1.4
  • HUE-1506 [search] Impersonation support
  • HUE-1475 [core] Switch back from spawning server


Thank you for all the bugs, suggestions, and feedback and stay tuned, a few major changes could not make it to 3.0 but will land soon!

    HUE Support Team,

    Can you please help me to get the documentation on Sqoop with HUE 3.9.0. I am using HDP- version. When i tried configured sqoop app on HUE 3.9.0. Its not working. HUE.3.9.0 –> DataBrowsers –> Sqoop Transfer — is not working.

    What is the supported version of SQOOP to work with HUE 3.9.0. Need proper steps to implement in HDP

      What does it mean it’s not working? What do you see? Can you post a screenshot?
      Also, we have a very low experience with HDP, you probably have more luck on the HDP forums 🙂

      Hi! Which version of Hue are you using? And is it part of a CDH installation or something else? Thanks!

      • Artur 10 months ago

        This is an error in 1.99.7 since they’ve changed API

          The plan is to have a look this summer to fix the bugs, or make it easier to use Sqoop1 until Sqoop2 is GA.
