Enabling audit aging

You can initiate and configure Audit aging feature in Atlas either though application-properties in Cloudera Manager and the REST API route.

For all the audit aging operations, the configuration can be enabled through application properties.

From Cloudera Manager > Configuration tab > Atlas Server Advanced Configuration Snippet (Safety Valve) for conf/atlas-application.properties

Once the configuration is updated in Cloudera Manager, restart Atlas to enable audit aging and also follow the audit aging process based on the scheduled frequency.

You can specify the audit aging cases based on the configuration property named atlas.audit.aging.enabled=true. By default, this property is disabled. If needed, you must explicitly enable the property.

The following types of audit aging are supported:
  • Default Audit Aging
  • Sweep out Audits
  • Custom Audit Aging
