Disabling the share option in Hue

Hue allows you to share documents, queries, and workflows with other users, either for viewing only or viewing and modifying. Sharing is enabled by default in the Hue UI. For added privacy and control, you can disable sharing by setting the enable_sharing property to false in the Advanced Configuration Snippet.

The sharing option is always available to the admin users. To disable the share option:
  1. Log in to Cloudera Manager as an Administrator.
  2. Go to Clusters > Hue service > Configuration > Hue Service Advanced Configuration Snippet (Safety Valve) for hue_safety_valve.ini and set the value of the enable_sharing property to false in the [desktop] section:
  3. Click Save Changes.
  4. Restart the Hue service.
