    Hello @Federico Sardo,

    Thanks for the question and using MS Q&A platform.

    In order to access Hue service from HDInsight cluster, you need to configure the below steps to successfully connect to Hue service.

    Steps to access Hue through with HDInsight cluster:

    Step1: Use the tunnel from your browser.

    Note: We recommend using Firefox web browser to follow the instructions below.

    Open Firefox browser => Settings => Scroll down => Network Settings => Configure SOCKS v5 proxy.


    Step2: SSH into HDInsight cluster and get the fully qualified domain name of the primary headnode.

    Note: Options controlling SSH port forwarding enabled.
    PuTTY Configuration tunneling options

    Login using putty => ssh sshuser@CLUSTERNAME-ssh.azurehdinsight.net

    Once connected, use the following command to obtain the fully qualified domain name of the primary headnode: **hostname -f
    This will return a name similar to the following: hn0-myhdi-nfebtpfdv1nubcidphpap2eq2b.ex.internal.cloudapp.net


    Step3: Use the browser to open the Hue portal at http://HOSTNAME:8888. Replace HOSTNAME with the name you obtained in the previous step2.

    Hostname: http://hn0-myhdi-nfebtpfdv1nubcidphpap2eq2b.ex.internal.cloudapp.net:8888

    For first time users: Needs to create your Hue account username and Password, this is used to login in HUE. (Example you can create any username and password or just create admin and some password which is used for HDInsight cluster)

    Note: When you log in for the first time, you will be prompted to create an account to log in to the Hue portal. The credentials you specify here will be limited to the portal and are not related to the admin or SSH user credentials you specified while provision the cluster.

    For more details, refer Use SSH tunneling to access Apache Ambari web UI, JobHistory, NameNode, Apache Oozie, and other UIs and “Use Hue with HDInsight clusters”.
