Administering Ambari
Also available as:

Setting the Ambari Admin Flag

You can elevate one or more users to have Ambari administrative privileges, by setting the Ambari Admin flag. You must be logged in as an account that is an Ambari Admin to set or remove the Ambari Admin flag.

To set the Ambari Admin Flag:

  1. Browse to the Users section.

  2. Click the user name you wish to modify.

  3. Click on the Ambari Admin control.

  4. Switch Yes to set, or No to remove the Admin flag.


To prevent you from accidently locking yourself out of the Ambari Administration user interface, Ambari prevents setting the Ambari Admin flag for your own Ambari Admin account to No.
