Role Triggers The configured triggers for this role. This is a JSON-formatted list of triggers. These triggers are evaluated as part as the health system. Every trigger expression is parsed, and if the trigger condition is met, the list of actions provided in the trigger expression is executed. Each trigger has the following fields:
  • triggerName (mandatory) - The name of the trigger. This value must be unique for the specific role.
  • triggerExpression (mandatory) - A tsquery expression representing the trigger.
  • streamThreshold (optional) - The maximum number of streams that can satisfy a condition of a trigger before the condition fires. By default set to 0, and any stream returned causes the condition to fire.
  • enabled (optional) - By default set to 'true'. If set to 'false', the trigger is not evaluated.
  • expressionEditorConfig (optional) - Metadata for the trigger editor. If present, the trigger should only be edited from the Edit Trigger page; editing the trigger here can lead to inconsistencies.
For example, the following JSON formatted trigger configured for a DataNode fires if the DataNode has more than 1500 file descriptors opened:[{"triggerName": "sample-trigger", "triggerExpression": "IF (SELECT fd_open WHERE roleName=$ROLENAME and last(fd_open) > 1500) DO health:bad", "streamThreshold": 0, "enabled": "true"}]See the trigger rules documentation for more details on how to write triggers using tsquery.The JSON format is evolving and may change and, as a result, backward compatibility is not guaranteed between releases.

Role Triggers The configured triggers for this role. This is a JSON-formatted list of triggers. These triggers are evaluated as part as the health system. Every trigger expression is parsed, and if the trigger condition is met, the list of actions provided in the trigger expression is executed. Each trigger has the following fields:
  • triggerName (mandatory) - The name of the trigger. This value must be unique for the specific role.
  • triggerExpression (mandatory) - A tsquery expression representing the trigger.
  • streamThreshold (optional) - The maximum number of streams that can satisfy a condition of a trigger before the condition fires. By default set to 0, and any stream returned causes the condition to fire.
  • enabled (optional) - By default set to 'true'. If set to 'false', the trigger is not evaluated.
  • expressionEditorConfig (optional) - Metadata for the trigger editor. If present, the trigger should only be edited from the Edit Trigger page; editing the trigger here can lead to inconsistencies.
For example, the following JSON formatted trigger configured for a DataNode fires if the DataNode has more than 1500 file descriptors opened:[{"triggerName": "sample-trigger", "triggerExpression": "IF (SELECT fd_open WHERE roleName=$ROLENAME and last(fd_open) > 1500) DO health:bad", "streamThreshold": 0, "enabled": "true"}]See the trigger rules documentation for more details on how to write triggers using tsquery.The JSON format is evolving and may change and, as a result, backward compatibility is not guaranteed between releases.

Audit Event Tracker Configures the rules for event tracking and coalescing. This feature is used to define equivalency between different audit events. When events match, according to a set of configurable parameters, only one entry in the audit list is generated for all the matching events. Tracking works by keeping a reference to events when they first appear, and comparing other incoming events against the "tracked" events according to the rules defined here. Event trackers are defined in a JSON object like the following: { "timeToLive" : [integer], "fields" : [ { "type" : [string], "name" : [string] } ] } Where:
  • timeToLive: maximum amount of time an event will be tracked, in milliseconds. Must be provided. This defines how long, since it's first seen, an event will be tracked. A value of 0 disables tracking.
  • fields: list of fields to compare when matching events against tracked events.
Each field has an evaluator type associated with it. The evaluator defines how the field data is to be compared. The following evaluators are available:
  • value: uses the field value for comparison.
  • userName: treats the field value as a userName, and ignores any host-specific data. This is useful for environment using Kerberos, so that only the principal name and realm are compared.
The following is the list of fields that can be used to compare Hue events:
  • operation: the Hue operation being performed.
  • username: the user performing the action.
  • ipAddress: the IP from where the request originated.
  • allowed: whether the operation was allowed or denied.

Enable LDAP TLS If true, attempts to establish a TLS (Transport Layer Security) connection with an LDAP server that was specified with ldap://. Not required when using an LDAP URL with prefix ldaps://, because that already specifies TLS. This option is also known as "Use StartTLS". use_start_tls true use_start_tls false
