Is it possible to use Zookeeper with the current (7.11) hortonworks connector? It works for us to connect directly to hive, but there seems no way to enter the Zookeeper namespace in the Spotfire connector UI. Is there a different way to do this connection, which actually uses Zookeeper ?
You have to install Hive or Hortonworks ODBC driver on the machine where Spotfire Analyst is installed to enable those connectors. Once the driver is installed, you should be able to connect to Hive using any of the two connectors. Requirements and Links to download ODBC drivers are available here
