Configuring srm-control

Security configuration is required before you can start using the srm-control-tool to manage the replication of topics and consumer groups. Configuration can be done with Cloudera Manager or by setting environment variables.

The srm-control tool requires security configuration prior to use. There are two methods of configuration, you can either use Cloudera Manager or environment variables.

The Cloudera Manager method involves logging into the Cloudera Manager instance managing your cluster and setting the required properties within the UI. The environment variable method involves logging into one of the Streams Replication Manager hosts and setting environment variables on the command line.

Which properties you have to configure depends on the security setup of your cluster.
