Using QDS for Data Exploration

Use the QDS Explore page to search data from various sources. By default, you see the Qubole Hive database with the expanded default database.


Clicking the Qubole logo in the QDS UI displays the Qubole home page.

For access to your Cloud storage, and to add an external data store, pull down the drop-down list next to Qubole Hive.


Only a system administrator can add a data store; other users do not see the Add Data Store option.

Use QDS Explore to:

  • View data in Hive tables

  • Connect to any supported database and view data from its tables

  • Connect to data buckets in Cloud storage and view the data
