Uploading and unlocking your keytab in SSB

After setting Kerberos or Knox authentication for SSB, you need to unlock the user specific keytabs on the Streaming SQL Console by providing your keytab password or uploading the keytab file. You cannot submit jobs until the keytab stays locked.

The following message is displayed on the Console in case the keytabs are still locked:
  • Before unlocking the keytab, you need to authenticate your username.
  1. Navigate to the Streaming SQL Console.
    1. Go to your cluster in Cloudera Manager.
    2. Select SQL Stream Builder from the list of services.
    3. Click SQLStreamBuilder Console.
    The Streaming SQL Console opens in a new window.
  2. Click your username on the main menu of the Streaming SQL Console.
  3. Click Manage keytab.
    The Keytab Manager window appears.
    You can either unlock the keytab already existing on the cluster, or you can directly upload your keytab file in the SQL Stream Builder.
    1. Unlock your keytab by providing the Principal Name and Password, and clicking Unlock Keytab.
    2. Upload your keytab by clicking on the Upload tab, uploading the keytab file directly to the Console, and clicking Unlock Keytab.
