The following sections describe new features for Cloudera Navigator 6.3.3:
Audit of HDFS set owner commands can include new owner name
Like all audit events, the HDFS audit event for a setOwner transaction records the 'Owner' as the name of the user running the command. There was no audit
information to indicate the new owner of the file or directory affected. This change allows you to enable collection of the new owner name in the audit event's 'Operation' text.
To enable this change, put the following in the NameNode Advanced Configuration Snippet (Safety Valve) for hdfs-site.xml:
With this change activated, searches in Navigator Audits or API calls with Operation == setOwner need to be changed to use "LIKE" instead of equal,
Operation *==* setOwner to account for the additional metadata in the Operation text field.
