Configuring the Impala Virtual Warehouse for authentication

You need to enable platform JWT authentication for your Impala Virtual Warehouse during creation or editing of the Virtual Warehouse. This action automatically configures the Impala Virtual Warehouse to support authentication using JWT tokens issued by the CDP JWT authentication provider.

Do not enable Unified Analytics if you want to configure JWT access to your Impala Virtual Warehouse for clients.
