Cloudera Impala connection

To access your data in Cloudera Impala, create a connection asset for it.

Cloudera Impala provides SQL queries directly on your Apache Hadoop data stored in HDFS or HBase.

Supported versions

Cloudera Impala 1.3+

Create a connection to Cloudera Impala

To create the connection asset, you need these connection details:

  • Database name
  • Hostname or IP address
  • Port number
  • Username and password
  • SSL certificate (if required by the database server)

For Private connectivity, to connect to a database that is not externalized to the internet (for example, behind a firewall), you must set up a secure connection.

Choose the method for creating a connection based on where you are in the platform

In a project Click Assets > New asset > Data access tools > Connection. See Adding a connection to a project.


In a catalog Click Add to catalog > Connection. See Adding a connection asset to a catalog.


In a deployment space Click Add to space > Connection. See Adding connections to a deployment space.
