Renaming a Service

Minimum Required Role: Full Administrator

A service is given a name upon installation, and that name is used as an identifier internally. However, Cloudera Manager allows you to provide a display name for a service, and that name will appear in the Cloudera Manager Admin Console instead of the original (internal) name.

  1. On the Home > Status tab, click to the right of the service name and select Rename.
  2. Type the new name.
  3. Click Rename.

The original service name will still be used internally, and may appear or be required in certain circumstances, such as in log messages or in the API.

The rename action is recorded as an Audit event.

When looking at Audit or Event search results for the renamed service, it is possible that these search results might contain either only the original (internal) name, or both the display name and the original name.
