Run Property type: Hive Optimization & Map Reduce Properties

  • From the drop-down select Hive Optimization or Map Reduce Properties to modify the properties corresponding to these.
  • To add a new property, click Add icon.

New Runtime properties window appears and allows you to select from the list.

  • Select one or more properties and click Ok.

If the list does not display the required property, then you can add the property in Diyotta Admin. For more details to add these property, refer Editing Runtime Properties.
  • New entry for the property is generated.

  • The "Property" field displays the assigned property.
  • The "Value" field displays the default value assigned to the property and if required you can change the value.
  • You can change the value by clicking on the value under the "Value" field. This could be a drop-down or text box. Select or enter the value to be used for the property during runtime.
  • To delete any added property, select the property from the list and click Delete icon.
Note: From the list of properties, multiple properties can be selected and we can perform/apply these operations.

Propagate Runtime Properties to dependent objects

When a runtime property is added, modified or deleted in the data point, then the changes need to be propagated to the dependent objects so that these are effective during execution. To propagate changes follow below steps.

Step IAfter making changes in the runtime properties, save the data point.

Step IISelect the property that was added or modified and click Propagate icon. If a property was deleted, then without selecting any property, click the Propagate icon.

Step III: The Propagate Runtime Properties window opens and shows the selected properties and the impacted objects.

Step IV: In the wizard, click OK and wait for the propagation to complete.
