How can I resolve the error "Unknown dataset URI pattern: dataset" when exporting Amazon RDS data to Amazon S3 in Parquet format using Sqoop?

Last updated: 2022-03-01

I'm trying to use an Amazon EMR cluster to export Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) data to Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) in Apache Parquet format using Apache Sqoop. I'm using the --as-parquetfile parameter, but I keep getting this error:

"Check that JARs for s3a datasets are on the class path Unknown dataset URI pattern: dataset."

Short description

This error affects Sqoop version 1.4.7. To resolve the error, download and install the kite-data-s3-1.1.0.jar.


Note: The following solution was tested on Amazon EMR release version 5.34.0 and Sqoop version 1.4.7.

1.    Connect to the master node using SSH.

2.    Use wget to download the kite-data-s3-1.1.0.jar:

[hadoop@ip-xxx-xx-xx-x]$ wget

3.    Confirm that the downloaded file is the correct size (1.7 MB):

[hadoop@ip-xxx-xx-xx-x]$ du -h
1.7M     /usr/lib/sqoop/lib/kite-data-s3-1.1.0.jar

4.    Move the JAR to the Sqoop library directory ( /usr/lib/sqoop/lib/):

sudo cp kite-data-s3-1.1.0.jar /usr/lib/sqoop/lib/

5.    Grant permission on the JAR:

sudo chmod 755 kite-data-s3-1.1.0.jar

6.    Use the s3n connector to import the jar. If you use the s3 connector, you get the Unknown dataset URI pattern: dataset error.

sqoop import --connect jdbc:mysql:// --username admin -P --table hist_root --target-dir "s3n://awsexamplebucket/sqoop_parquet/demo" --as-parquetfile -m 2 --split-by identifiers -- --schema onwatch
