Manually create entities
When upgrading to HDP-3.0+ from earlier versions, you may need to manually enable the HBase hook post-upgrade. On the Ambari dashboard, select HBase > Configs > Advanced hbase-env, then select the Enable Atlas Hook check box. Click Save, then restart HBase and any other services that require a restart.
On the Atlas web UI Search page, click the create new
entity link at the top of the page.
On the "Create entity" pop-up, select an entity type.
Enter the required information for the new entity. Click All to display both required and non-required information. Click Create to create the new entity.
The entity is created and returned in search results for the applicable entity
type. You can now associate classifications and terms with the new entity and control
access to the entity with Ranger policies.
