Query Export

A common operation is to export the results of a query to a database. This operation can be modelled as a workflow of Hive Query followed by a Data Export command. Query Export is a template with fields to fill in the Hive Query and the Data Export Command. The Hive Query should write its results out to a pre-determined location in an S3 bucket. The Data Export command must export the Hive table data from the pre-determined location to a Data Store.

See Composing a Query Export to use the Analyze user interface for composing a Hive query export.

See Submit a Hive Command and Submit a DB Export Command for more information on REST API commands.

Example

The following example shows Hive query and data export queries.

(only a subset of fields are shown)
