Druid implements an extension system that allows for adding functionality at runtime. Extensions are commonly used to add support for deep storages (like HDFS and S3), metadata stores (like MySQL and PostgreSQL), new aggregators, new input formats, and so on.
Production clusters will generally use at least two extensions; one for deep storage and one for a metadata store. Many clusters will also use additional extensions.
Imply bundles many commonly used extensions out of the box, including all
core Druid extensions. See the list of extensions below for your options. You
can load bundled extensions by adding their names to your common.runtime.properties
druid.extensions.loadList property. For example, to load the postgresql-metadata-storage and
druid-hdfs-storage extensions, use the configuration:
You can also load community and third-party extensions not already bundled with the Imply
distribution. To do this, first download the extension and then install it into your
dist/druid/extensions/ directory. You can download extensions from their distributors directly, or
if they are available from Maven, the included pull-deps can download them for you. To use pull-deps
specify the full Maven coordinate of the extension in the form
groupId:artifactId:version. For example,
for the (hypothetical) extension com.example:druid-example-extension:1.0.0, run:
java \ -cp "dist/druid/lib/*" \ -Ddruid.extensions.directory="extensions-tmp" \ -Ddruid.extensions.hadoopDependenciesDir="hadoop-dependencies-tmp" \ io.druid.cli.Main tools pull-deps \ --no-default-hadoop \ -c "com.example:druid-example-extension:1.0.0"
You can install downloaded extensions by copying them into
dist/druid/extensions. For example,
cp -R extensions-tmp/druid-example-extension dist/druid/extensions/druid-example-extension
You only have to install the extension once. Then, add
druid.extensions.loadList in common.runtime.properties to instruct Druid to load the extension. If
you used pull-deps, then once an extension is installed, you can remove the
hadoop-dependencies-tmp directories that it created.
Some of these extensions are bundled with the Imply distribution, and some are not. To load bundled extensions, see Loading bundled extensions. To load non-bundled, see Loading community and third-party extensions.
For additional documentation on these extensions, see the Druid documentation.
Core extensions are maintained by Druid committers. Some are in experimental status and some are fully production-tested Druid components.

Community extensions are contributed by Druid community members but are not necessarily maintained on an ongoing basis by Druid committers. The Druid documentation contains a list of community extensions.
Imply does not provide support for community extensions.
