Broker Query API

REST API on the Broker

Pinot can be queried via a broker endpoint as follows. This example assumes broker is running on localhost:8099

The Pinot REST API can be accessed by invoking POST operation with a JSON body containing the parameter sql to the /query/sql endpoint on a broker.

$ curl -H "Content-Type: application/json" -X POST \
   -d '{"sql":"select foo, count(*) from myTable group by foo limit 100"}' \

Query Console

Query Console can be used for running ad-hoc queries (checkbox available to query the PQL endpoint). The Query Console can be accessed by entering the <controller host>:<controller port> in your browser


You can also query using the pinot-admin scripts. Make sure you follow instructions in Getting Pinot to get Pinot locally, and then

cd incubator-pinot/pinot-tools/target/pinot-tools-pkg 
bin/ PostQuery \
  -queryType sql \
  -brokerPort 8000 \
  -query "select count(*) from baseballStats"
