About Migrating Sentry policies

Migrating Sentry policies to CDP is a two step process.

Export the Sentry policies from the CDH cluster and copy the generated output file(s) to the target environment. Later, the import utility (Authzmigrator tool) performs the Transform and Import operations to complete the Sentry migration process. Export operation is performed using the CDH cluster.

The following policy migrations are included as part of the migration process:

  • Kafka and Hive Sentry permissions

  • URL transformation to the AWS S3 endpoint

  • Default AWS S3 policy creation for Hive Warehouse location
