HUE - the Hadoop User Experience is an open source set of applications for managing Hadoop Clusters that works with most Hadoop distros
including the standalone version of the IBM Open Platform with Apache Hadoop.
The IBM Analytics for Apache Hadoop Service in Bluemix is powered by the IBM Open Platform with Apache Hadoop but deviates from
the standalone version of the IBM Open Platform in the way the WebHDFS URL is protected. Because of this wrinkle, the HUE file browser does
not work with the IBM Analytics for Apache Hadoop Service out of the box,. This image based on HUE 3.8.1 has the code modifications required
to support the way WebHDFS authentication is implemented by the IBM Analytics for Apache Hadoop Service in Bluemix.
When run in the [IBM Containers] (https://www.ng.bluemix.net/docs/containers/container_index.html) environment and bound to an app that is bound to an instance of the
IBM Analytics for Apache Hadoop Service, this image will automatically discover the credentials and URLs needed to access HDFS in the service instance. If run in
another Docker environment the credentials and URLs to access the IBM Analytics for Apache Hadoop Service's WebHDFS endpoint must be provided via environment variables.
For instructions on how to run this image and more details about the code modifications made to HUE, see the [Github repository] (https://github.com/ibmecod/bluemix-hue-filebrowser).
