We rely on WebHCat REST interface to retrieve Hive job progress for long-running queries.
Like this GET /templeton/v1/jobs/job_1498806400392_0014?user.name=xxx HTTP/1.1
Before updating (using HDP 2.5 with an older Hive version), we used progress info in "percentComplete" JSON response field.
After update, this field is always "null". I suppose this may be to changes in the progress reporting API in https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-15473
Thank you very much for your work!
Let me know if I can provide more info or help in any way
