Creating a Shared Data Context

You need to create a Shared Data Context so that the data, metadata, and security services can be shared from the Base cluster. This can then be used to create Compute clusters.

  • You have reviewed CFM installation workflow and have decided to install NiFi on a Compute cluster.
  • You have prepared your CDP Private Cloud Base Base cluster.
  • Your Base cluster has data, metadata, and security services to share.
  1. From Cloudera Manager Home, click on your Base cluster name to go the Detail page.
  2. In the Data Contexts section, click Create.
  3. In the Create Data Context dialog, provide a Data Context Name, specify your Base cluster, and click Create.

When you have finished creating a Shared Data Context, proceed to adding the NiFi and NiFi Registry groups to Ranger in the Base cluster if needed, then to creating a Compute cluster.
