Enabling Ranger authorization

You can configure fine-grained authorization using Apache Ranger. This topic provides the steps to enable Kudu's integration with Ranger from Cloudera Manager.

  1. From Cloudera Manager, go to Clusters > Kudu > Configurations.
  2. Select the Ranger Service with which Kudu should authorize requests.
  3. For clusters with Ranger high-availability enabled, an additional step to add a Kudu service repository via the Ranger Admin web UI is required. See Configuring the Integration with Apache Ranger.
    Note that the name of the added Kudu service repository needs to match the one specified in ranger.plugin.kudu.service.name of the Ranger client ranger-kudu-security.xml configuration file.
