Configuring the Server for Policy Messages
Cloudera Navigator can send notifications to a JMS message queue whenever entities change as a result of policies set for that class of entity. To use this capability, an administrator must setup a JMS server with a queue for the messages and then configure the JMS server using the Cloudera Manager Admin Console, as detailed below.
In addition to setting up and configuring the server side components, the policies (that include notifications about changes) are defined using the Cloudera Navigator console. See Using Policies to Automate Metadata Tagging for details about defining policies.
Configuring a JMS Server for Policy Messages
Only the JMS URL, JMS User, and JMS Password settings are required to set up the JMS Server. Enable Expression Input only if you want to use Java expressions to define your policies. See Metadata Policy Expressions for details about using Java expressions in your policy definitions.
These steps begin from the Cloudera Manager Admin Console home page.
