Dear team,


Is there a functional possibility to query mapr stream topic directly with apache drill without the need to create a mapr dbjson table and a drill table/view on top of it?

I have tried the following but doesn't work:

MapR Cluster version 5.2

Drill version:1.8

Drill Storage Plugin for dfs

 "type": "file",
  "enabled": true,
  "connection": "hdfs://mapr-fs directory/",
  "config": null,
  "workspaces": {
    "root": {
      "location": "/",
      "writable": false,
      "defaultInputFormat": "csv"
    "tmp": {
      "location": "/OGG/streams",
      "writable": true,
      "defaultInputFormat": null
    "json": {
      "type": "json",
      "extensions": [

Mapr Stream topic messages are emitted:'/OGG/streams:test'

Apache drill create table statement:  CREATE TABLE dfs.tmp.`customer_topic` (first_name,last_name,age) AS SELECT columns[0]first_name,columns[1]last_name,columns[2]age FROM dfs.`/mapr-fs directory/OGG/streams:test`;
Error: Table 'dfs./mapr-fs directory/OGG/streams' not found.
