Getting started as an admin

As an admin user for CDP Private Cloud, there are specific tasks that you must perform to ensure that authorized users can log into Private Cloud, and work on the Cloudera Data Warehouse (CDW) and Cloudera Machine Learning (CML) experiences.

Accessing CDP Private Cloud

Log into the CDP Private Cloud console as the local admin user for setting up the users. If LDAP is already configured with the base cluster, then those LDAP users are automatically added on logging in to the CDP Private Cloud console the first time.

Setting up an identity provider

In order to add users from your organization to CDP, set up your identity provider. For instructions, refer to Configuring identity providers.

Setting up an environment

Register an environment for your organization. Environments in CDP Private Cloud provide shared data, security, and governance (metadata) for your machine learning and data warehouse applications. For instructions on registering, refer to Environments.

Assigning roles to users

You must assign roles to the users added to access CDP Private Cloud. Users with the PowerUser role can assign roles to other users. For instructions, refer to Assigning account-level roles to users.

Provisioning compute resources

After performing these steps, you are set to start provisioning compute resources such as Data Warehouses and Machine Learning workspaces. For more information, refer to the following:
