Configuring Resource-Based Services

The Service Manager for Resource Based Policies page is displayed when you log in to the Ranger Console. You can also access this page by selecting Access Manager > Resource Based Policies. You can use this page to create services for Hadoop resources (HDFS, HBase, Hive, etc.) and add access policies to those resources.


The Ambari Ranger installation procedure automatically configures these services, so there should be no need to a add a service manually.

  • To add a new resource-based service, click the Add icon () in the applicable box on the Service Manager page. Enter the required configuration settings, then click Add.

  • To edit a resource-based service, click the Edit icon () at the right of the service. Edit the service settings, then click Save to save your changes.

  • To delete a resource-based service, click the Delete icon () at the right of the service. Deleting a service also deletes all of the policies for that service.
