Configuring secure access between Solr and Hue

If you are using Solr (search) to build dynamic search dashboards and explore data from the Hue web UI, and have secured your CDP cluster using Kerberos, then you must enable secure access between the Solr service and Hue by turning on the security_enabled parameter in the hue_safety_valve.ini file.

The security_enabled parameter is set to false, by default. To enable secure access between Solr and Hue:

  1. Sign in to Cloudera Manager as an Administrator.
  2. Go to Clusters > Hue service > Configuration and search for the Hue Service Advanced Configuration Snippet (Safety Valve) for hue_safety_valve.ini field.
  3. Go to the [search] section and set the value of the security_enabled parameter to true, as shown in the following sample:
    # Requires FQDN in solr_url if enabled
    # URL of the Solr Server
  4. Click Save Changes.
  5. Restart the Hue service.
