Configuring Groups for Cloudera Navigator

Cloudera Navigator user role privileges are applied to groups contained in the external authentication mechanism. In the external system using the appropriate management tool for the platform, create groups comprising all the user accounts to which a specific set of privileges should apply. For example, create one group for auditors and another group for data stewards. Create a different group for administrators. To each group, add the user accounts of people who should have the same set of Cloudera Navigator privileges. The user accounts and groups must exist in the external authentication mechanism before the user roles can be applied to them.

Once a group exists in the external authentication system, one or more Cloudera Navigator user roles can be assigned to the group using the Cloudera Navigator console. See Configuring Navigator User Roles in the Cloudera Navigator Data Management guide
