Add Ranger policies

Add Ranger policies to ensure that you have write access to your HBase tables.

  1. Go to Ranger in your Data Lake, and select the cm_hbase service.
  2. From the Ranger cm_hbase service in your Data Lake, create a new policy called customer-ingest that allows the nifi-hbase-ingest user to access the HBase table into which you want to ingest data.
    The policy should ensure that the specified user has access to:
    • The HBase table for data ingest
    • The HBase Column family for data ingest into the specified table
    • All columns within the specified column family
    • Allows read and write permissions
