Create SQL tables on the fly with zero clicks

Published on 26 July 2021 in Version 4.11 / Development / Query - 1 minute read

Last month, we introduced creating a table from the local file using importer. Previously, creating a new table required you to set up a storage account such as HDFS, S3, or ADLS to upload data. The list of SQL dialects was also restrictive, with no support for Apache Phoenix. Now, creating a table is even easier. Just drag and drop a CSV file on the table listing, and Hue automatically creates a SQL table for you!
