Ranger API Overview

The Ranger REST API provides a framework to enable, monitor and manage comprehensive data security across the CDP platform.

Apache Ranger currently provides a centralized security administration, fine grain access control and detailed auditing for user access within Apache Hadoop, Apache Hive, Apache HBase and other Apache components. The Ranger REST API documentation is served on the same host and port as the Ranger Admin Web UI, and does not require an extra process or extra configuration. The API supports HTTP Basic Authentication, accepting the same users and credentials as the Ranger Admin Web UI. For more information about REST APIs available for collecting Ranger metrics, see:
