Register an Azure environment from CDP CLI
Once you’ve met the Azure cloud provider requirements, register your Azure environment.
Before you begin
This assumes that you have already fulfilled the environment prerequisites described in Azure requirements.
Required role: EnvironmentCreator
Unlike in the CDP web interface, in CDP CLI environment creation is a three-step process with environment creation, setting IDBroker mappings and Data Lake creation being three separate steps. The easiest way to obtain the correct commands is to provide all parameters in CDP web interface and then generate the CDP CLI commands on the last page of the wizard. For detailed steps, refer to Obtain CLI commands for registering an environment.
After you finish
After your environment is running, perform the following steps:
- You must assign roles to specific users and groups for the environment so that selected users or user groups can access the environment. Next, you need to perform user sync. For steps, refer to Enabling admin and user access to environments.
- You must onboard your users and/or groups for cloud storage. For steps, refer to Onboarding CDP users and groups for cloud storage.
- You must create Ranger policies for your users. For instructions on how to access your Data Lake, refer to Accessing Data Lake services. Once you've accessed Ranger, create Ranger policies to determine which users have access to which databases and tables.
