Hive OCF Connector: Version 1.1.5

Fixed Issues

Metadata Extraction Fails for Objects with Whitespace Characters

Metadata Extraction (MDE) fails when encountering a whitespace character in MDE object names.

Now, if the connector encounters a whitespace object name, it logs the object and skips cataloging the object with the whitespace character. Therefore, the Hive OCF Connector is now tolerant and helps catalog all the objects that can be cataloged without issues in Alation.
