Apache HDFS

Connecting to HDFS

In order to connect, set the following connection properties:

  • Host: Set this value to the host of your HDFS installation.

  • Port: Set this value to the port of your HDFS installation. Default port: 50070

  • UseSSL: (Optional) Set this value to 'True', to negotiate TLS/SSL connections to the HDFS server. Default: 'False'.

Authenticating to HDFS

There are two authentication methods available for connecting to the HDFS data source, Anonymous Authentication and Negotiate (Kerberos) Authentication.

Anonymous Authentication

In some situations, HDFS may be connected to without any authentication connection properties. To do so, set the AuthScheme to None (default).


When authentication credentials are required, you can use Kerberos.
