8.3. Using the HBase Data Store in GeoServerΒΆ

Note

For general information on working with GeoMesa GeoServer plugins, see GeoServer Plugins.

From the main GeoServer page, create a new store by either clicking “Add stores” in the middle of the Welcome page, or anywhere in the interface by clicking “Data > Stores” in the left-hand menu and then clicking “Add new Store”.

If you have properly installed the GeoMesa HBase GeoServer plugin as described in Installing GeoMesa HBase in GeoServer, “HBase (GeoMesa)” should be included in the list under Vector Data Sources. If you do not see this, check that you unpacked the plugin JARs into in the right directory and restart GeoServer.

On the “Add Store” page, select “HBase (GeoMesa)”. The HBase data store takes a single parameter:

  • bigtable.table.name - the name of the HBase table that stores feature type data

Other configuration information is taken from hbase-site.xml (see Installing GeoMesa HBase in GeoServer).

Click “Save”, and GeoServer will search HBase for any GeoMesa-managed feature types.
