Supported versions of Cloudera Impala JDBC drivers



IBM Cognos Analytics supports connections to Cloudera Impala data servers that use JDBC drivers version 2.5.34 and later. JDBC drivers earlier than 2.5.34 are not supported.


When attempting to connect to Cloudera Impala, the query engine checks the version of the JDBC driver. If the version is earlier than 2.5.34, an error message is returned.

To avoid potential issues, Cognos administrators should replace older versions of JDBC drivers for Impala in the Cognos Analytics environment with newer versions. For more information, see this article (
