Outdated release! Latest docs are Release 8.7: HDFS Browser

   

The HDFS browser enables you to browse, select, and filter the files to which you have access in the Hadoop cluster to which Trifacta® Self-Managed Enterprise Edition is connected.

The HDFS browser appears when you create a dataset in HDFS or in the HDFS tab when you import a dataset. See Import Data Page.

NOTE: Interactions with HDFS are determined by user permissions and features enabled in the Trifacta platform. For more information, see Using HDFS.

Figure: HDFS Browser

Browse HDFS:

Use the links and icons to browse for files and folders in the HDFS tree structure.

NOTE: Avoid using the Back button on your browser, which exits the HDFS browser without applying changes to your configuration.

Tip: You can retrieve your home directory from your profile. See Storage Config Page.

Filter Files:

To display a subset of files, enter a string in the Search box. The filter is applied as you type and matches anywhere in the name of a currently displayed file or folder.
