Migrating Navigator content to Atlas

While upgrading from CDH to CDP Private Cloud Base, you can migrate the metadata from Navigator to Apache Atlas, for a scalable and robust infrastructure that supports enhanced metadata searchability by collecting metadata directly from your cluster.

Cloudera Runtime 7.0.0 includes Apache Atlas to collect technical metadata from cluster services. Atlas replaces Cloudera Navigator Data Management for these clusters. Cloudera has incorporated many features from Navigator into Apache Atlas to make sure that the rich metadata collected in Navigator can be represented in Atlas. Atlas provides scalable and robust infrastructure that supports metadata searches and lineage across enterprise production clusters.

You may choose not to migrate Navigator content to Atlas: this document describes how to think about archiving your Navigator audit information and metadata.

Whether you choose to migrate Navigator contents to Atlas or not, you must know how to use Atlas to accomplish the tasks you are accustomed to performing in Navigator.
