Configuring Impala to Work with ODBC
Third-party products, especially business intelligence and reporting tools, can access Impala using the ODBC protocol. For the best experience, ensure any third-party product you intend to use is supported. Verifying support includes checking that the versions of Impala, ODBC, the operating system, the Apache Hadoop distribution, and the third-party product have all been approved by the appropriate suppliers for use together. To configure your systems to use ODBC, download and install a connector, typically from the supplier of the third-party product or the Hadoop distribution. You may need to sign in and accept license agreements before accessing the pages required for downloading ODBC connectors.
