Apache HBase


You can use the Apache HBase connector from the CData Sync application to capture data from Apache HBase and move it to any supported destination. To do so, you need to add the connector, authenticate to the connector, and complete your connection.

Establish a Connection

To allow Sync to use data from Apache HBase, you first must establish a connection to Apache HBase. Follow these steps to connect Apache HBase to your Sync account:

  1. Open the Connections page of the Sync dashboard.

  2. Click Add Connection to open the Select Connectors page.

  3. Click the Sources tab and locate the Apache HBase row.

  4. Click the Configure Connection icon at the end of that row. If you do not see the Configure Connection icon, you need to add the connector according to the instructions in Connections.

  5. Enter connection settings on the Settings tab:

    • Connection Name - Enter a connection name of your choice.

    • Server - Enter the host name or IP address of the Apache HBase REST server.

    • Port - Enter the port number for the Apache HBase REST server. The default port value is 8080.

    • Auth Scheme - Select your authentication scheme below to proceed to the relevant section for your scheme. Then fill out the settings as specified in that section.

      • None (This auth scheme does not require any additional settings. So, you can select this scheme and continue with the settings and steps below.)
      • Basic
      • Negotiate
  6. Click Create & Test to create the connection.

  7. Define advanced connection settings on the Advanced tab. (In most cases, though, you should not need these settings.)

Basic

  1. For the Basic scheme, specify these settings:

    • User - Enter the username that you use to authenticate to your Apache HBase account.

    • Password - Enter the password that you use to authenticate to your Apache Base account.

  2. Complete the remaining steps.

Negotiate

  1. For the Negotiate scheme, specify these settings:

    • User - Enter the username that you use to authenticate to your Apache HBase account.

    • Password - Enter the password that you use to authenticate to your Apache Base account.

    • Kerberos KDC - Enter the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Kerberos Key Distribution Center (KDC) service that you use to authenticate to HBase.

    • Kerberos Realm - Enter the Kerberos Realm that you use to authenticate to HBase.

    • Kerberos SPN - Enter the service principal name (SPN) for the Kerberos domain controller.

    • Kerberos Keytab File - Enter the keytab file that contains your pairs of the Kerberos principals and encrypted keys.

    • Kerberos Ticket Cache - Enter the full file path to the Kerberos credential cache file.

  2. Complete the remaining steps.
