Post subject: Crystal Reports to Hadoop

Hi all, hoping someone might have some experience in connecting Crystal Reports to Hadoop and could help me out.

I've managed to get it to connect and can do all the basics, after making a few of the registry changes to fix join syntax and stuff.

The current issue I'm stuck on is creation and usage of Parameters.
Neither static or dynamic work properly.
The reason why is because when Crystal executes the query to pull back the list of values, the syntax is
SELECT DISTINCT [columnname] FROM [table] GROUP BY [columnname]

While this syntax is redundant, and would work in a Teradata or MS SQL environment for example, it is invalid against Hadoop, so it fails.

I cannot find any registry entry outlined in SAP's provided details that would fix this. Results are the same whether using ODBC or JDBC.

I'm using Crystal Reports 2016 SP3 Patch 4.

Thanks for any help!
Jesse
