Installing Apache Atlas
Also available as:

Install sample Atlas metadata

You can use the Python script to install sample metadata to view in the Atlas web UI.

  1. Log in to the Atlas host server using a command prompt.
  2. Run the following command as the Atlas user:
    su atlas -c '/usr/hdp/current/atlas-server/bin/'

    In an SSL-enabled environment, run this command as:

    su atlas -c '/usr/hdp/current/atlas-server/bin/  https://<fqdn_atlas_host>:21443'

    When prompted, type in the Atlas user name and password. When the script finishes running, the following confirmation message appears:

    Example data added to Apache Atlas Server!!!

    If Kerberos is enabled, kinit is required to execute the script

    After you have installed the sample metadata, you can explore the Atlas web UI.


    If you are using the HDP Sandbox, you do not need to run the Python script to populate Atlas with sample metadata.
