Kerberos Settings


Before setting up Kerberos for Files View, you must first set up Kerberos for Ambari by configuring the Ambari Server daemon with a Kerberos principal and keytab.


After you have set up Kerberos for Ambari, in Files View > Settings, enter the following properties:



Example Value

WebHDFS Username

This is the username the view will access HDFS as. Leave this default value intact to represent the authenticated view user.


WebHDFS Authorization

This is the semicolon-separated authentication configuration for WebHDFS access.


**This property is only needed if the view is Custom Configured or Ambari Server is Kerberized before 2.4.0.

With a Kerberos setup, the proxy user setting should be the primary value of the Kerberos principal for Ambari Server. For example, if you configured Ambari Server for Kerberos principal ambari-server@EXAMPLE.COM, this value would be ambari-server.
