Disabling the Credential Storage Provider

To disable the Credential Storage Provider (CSP), perform the following steps on the Cloudera Manager UI.

Minimum Required Role: Full Administrator. This feature is not available when using Cloudera Manager to manage Data Hub clusters.

If you are already using a Vault based CSP and need to switch to a new Vault configuration, you need to disable CSP and enable CSP again with the new Vault configuration.

  1. Log in to the Cloudera Manager Admin Console.
  2. Go to Administration and select the Security category.
  3. To dissable CSP, click Disable Credential Storage and click OK.
  4. If you want to enable a different type of CSP, see Configuring a Secure Credential Storage Provider for Cloudera Manager.
The CSP is now disabled and the credentials and configurations stored in the Cloudera Manager are decrypted.
