PROBLEM DESCRIPTION


Creating a pipeline fails with the below error in Infoworks ADE.


The HDFS path you provided is conflicting with an existing entity (path: //storage/data/analytics/customer target: "/storage/data/analytics//customer" in pipeline pipelines_2_customer" [domain: "Customer_details"]). Please choose a different HDFS path).


ROOT CAUSE


This issue happens if we provide the Hive Schema and HDFS path which is already used by some other pipeline.


RESOLUTION/ WORKAROUND


Provide a new target HDFS path and Hive schema for the new pipeline which is not used by any other pipeline and save the configuration.
