Phoenix Cmdlets

An easy-to-use set of PowerShell Cmdlets offering real-time access to Apache Phoenix. The Cmdlets allow users to easily read, write, update, and delete live data - just like working with SQL server.

Use standard PowerShell cmdlets to access Phoenix tables.

The CData Cmdlets Module for Phoenix is a standard PowerShell module offering straightforward integration with Phoenix. Below, you will find examples of using our ApachePhoenix Cmdlets with native PowerShell cmdlets.

Creating a Connection to Your Phoenix Data

Connect to Apache Phoenix via the Phoenix Query Server. Set the Server and Port (if different from the default port) properties to connect to Apache Phoenix. The Server property will typically be the host name or IP address of the server hosting Apache Phoenix.

Authenticating to Apache Phoenix

By default, no authentication will be used (plain). If authentication is configured for your server, set AuthScheme to NEGOTIATE and set the User and Password properties (if necessary) to authenticate through Kerberos.

$conn = Connect-ApachePhoenix  -Server "$Server" -Port "$Port"

Selecting Data

Follow the steps below to retrieve data from the MyTable table and pipe the result into to a CSV file:

Select-ApachePhoenix -Connection $conn -Table MyTable | Select -Property * -ExcludeProperty Connection,Table,Columns | Export-Csv -Path c:\myMyTableData.csv -NoTypeInformation

You will notice that we piped the results from Select-ApachePhoenix into a Select-Object cmdlet and excluded some properties before piping them into an Export-Csv cmdlet. We do this because the CData Cmdlets append Connection, Table, and Columns information onto each "row" in the result set, and we do not necessarily want that information in our CSV file.

The Connection, Table, and Columns are appended to the results in order to facilitate piping results from one of the CData Cmdlets directly into another one.
