Unable to kill Hive queries from the Hue Job Browser in a Kerberized cluster
On a Kerberized cluster, if YARN does not have Kerberos authentication enabled for
HTTP web consoles, then you may not be able to kill Hive queries from the Hue Job Browser,
and you may see the following error in the Hue role log
file: "The default static user cannot carry out this operation. (error 403)".
yarn application -kill [***APPLICATION-ID***]
To enable killing jobs and running queries from the Hue Job Browser, enable Kerberos authentication for HTTP web consoles for YARN as follows:
- Log in to Cloudera Manager as an Administrator.
- Go to and type enable kerberos in the search box.
- Select Enable Kerberos Authentication for HTTP Web-Consoles.
- Click Save Changes.
- Restart the YARN service.
