Prepare to register RAZ-enabled Azure environment
Before you register a RAZ-enabled Azure environment in CDP Public Cloud, you must ensure that the cloud provider prerequisites are in place.
The RAZ service consists of RAZ client and RAZ server. The RAZ client is integrated into the HDFS driver. The Azure environment in CDP Public Cloud can use the RAZ client and RAZ server capabilities after you register the RAZ-enabled Azure environment.
- Pre-create a resource group on Azure.
Using resource groups created by CDP with a RAZ-enabled environment is not supported. See Resource groups.
- Create a designated Ranger RAZ managed identity as described in the Minimum setup for cloud storage and in Creating Ranger RAZ managed identity for RAZ-enabled Azure environment. You can optionally create a custom policy for the Ranger RAZ managed identity.
