CDP user management

The Cloudera Data Platform (CDP) Private Cloud Management Console includes a user management system that allows you to integrate your LDAP identity provider and manage user access to CDP resources.

When CDP Private Cloud is installed, a CDP account administrator user is created. A CDP account administrator has all privileges and can perform any task in CDP. Administrators can create other administrators by assigning the EnvironmentAdmin role to users. CDP users with the EnvironmentAdmin role can also register environments and create Data Lake clusters.

The CDP Private Cloud Management Console also enables account administrators to federate access to CDP by configuring an external LDAP identity provider. CDP users can include users synched with an external LDAP identity provider, or machine users. Machine users can be assigned roles and resource roles, but cannot log in to the web console.
