BUG-125263: Zeppelin service move fails on clusters upgraded from HDP3.1.5
Resolve the circular symlink issue on the Zeppelin node by linking the conf directory to a new directory under /etc/zeppelin:
  • # mkdir -p /etc/zeppelin/<version>/0
  • # rm /usr/hdp/<version>/zeppelin/conf
  • # ln -s /etc/zeppelin/<version>/0 /usr/hdp/<version>/zeppelin/conf
Where version is the HDP version. For example, 7.1.x-yyy. Restart the Zeppelin server in Ambari.
CDPD-16845: Zeppelin - Upgrade to Shiro 1.6.0 due to CVE-2020-13933
In the Zeppelin's shiro-ini configuration, set the following properties: invalidRequest.blockBackslash = false invalidRequest.blockSemicolon = false invalidRequest.blockNonAscii = false
CDPD-3090: Due to a configuration typo, functionality involving notebook repositories does not work
Due to a missing closing brace, access to the notebook repositories API is blocked by default.
From the CDP Management Console, go to Cloudera Manager for the cluster running Zeppelin. On the Zeppelin configuration page (Zeppelin service > Configuration), enter shiro urls in the Search field, and then add the missing closing brace to the notebook-repositories URL, as follows:
/api/notebook-repositories/** = authc, roles[{{zeppelin_admin_group}}]

Click Save Changes, and restart the Zeppelin service.

CDPD-2406: Logout button does not work
Clicking the Logout button in the Zeppelin UI logs you out, but then immediately logs you back in using SSO.
