Configuring OAuth in Data Hub

To connect a DataHub cluster to ADLS Gen2 with OAuth, you must configure the Hadoop CredentialProvider or core-site.xml directly. Although configuring core-site.xml is convenient, it is insecure since the contents of core-site.xml are not encrypted. For this reason, Cloudera recommends using a credential provider.

Before you start, ensure that you have configured OAuth for Azure.
