User Authorization

As a CDP administrator, after you create an environment, you must enable flow-management users to access the environment, utilize resources, and perform tasks in CDP. Assign the appropriate CDP resource role and one or more Ranger access policies based on the type of access the user requires.

A CDP resource role grants a user or user-group permission to access and perform tasks on a resource.

A Ranger access policy for flow management contains one or more access rights to NiFi or NiFi Registry resources.
