Clarification of Loading Parquet files from Hive


Can you clarify something im not sure about?

I’m trying to load some data from existing Hive tables stored as Parquet files into Druid.

I’m going over both the Hive-Druid Integration here: as well as the documentation for Parquet file ingestion here:

If my goal is to load (parts of) a Hive table into druid should i first create a table from hive with the DruidStorageHandler and only then run the ingestion task from that output table? Trying to understand the flow here.
