Kylo Datasources Guide¶
Kylo can manage the creation and usage of Nifi RDBMS data source configurations, through a simple Data Source UI.
Permissions for the jars are separate per the type of process running.
$NIFI_HOME/data/lib or any path accesible by NiFi Needed by Nifi for the DBCPConnectionPool. The path might be erased at Nifi upgrade time. $KYLO_HOME/kylo-services/plugin Needed by Kylo in the schema discovery (Data Ingestion). Need to restart Kylo if added post-start $KYLO_HOME/kylo-services/lib Needed by Kylo wrangler (Visual Query / Data Transformation)
While using the Visual Query / Data Transformation, you will need to make available the datasource jar. Recommended is to keep the datasource jar with the application (Kylo/Nifi), and pass it along to spark.
Depending on the Spark setup (server mode or the others), you will need to do different changes.
Server mode / Sandbox¶
- edit $KYLO_HOME/kylo-services/bin/run-kylo-spark-shell.sh
- update KYLO_DRIVER_CLASS_PATH with the path to the datasource jar (can be under $NIFI_HOME)
OR (not so recommended)
- update/append $SPARK_HOME/conf/spark-defaults.conf with the path value. Values can be appended with ”:” .This file should be referenced by spark-submit, or it’s referenced by /opt/kylo/kylo-services/bin/run-kylo-spark-shell.sh, which passes the values like spark-submit ... –driver-class-path /path-to-oracle-jdbc/:/path-to-other-jars/
- edit $KYLO_HOME/kylo-services/spark.properties
- add to spark.shell.sparkArgs the –jar /path-to-datasource-jdbc/

Database Connection URL = jdbc:oracle:thin:@oracle:1521 Database Driver Class Name = oracle.jdbc.OracleDriver User = <user> Password = <password> Database Driver Location = /opt/nifi/oracle/oracle-jdbc.jar (needs to be accesible by Nifi)
Oracle tables are only in UPPERCASE
MariaDB / MySQL¶
Database Connection URL = jdbc:mariadb://mariadb:3306 Database Driver Class Name = org.mariadb.jdbc.Driver User = <user> Password = <password> Database Driver Location = /opt/nifi/mysql/maria-jdbc.jar (needs to be accesible by Nifi)
(OPT) Specify the password in the Kylo application properties file Update /opt/kylo/kylo-services/conf/application.properties with nifi.service.<datasource_name>.password=<password>
