Hue configuration files

All Hue configuration properties are stored in hue.ini but only a subset are exposed in Cloudera Manager. Properties that are not exposed (such as the Authentication Backend for SAML) can be configured in Cloudera Manager with "safety-valves."

Hue roles are configured with three .ini files that are read in order (with the last one, hue_safety_valve_server.ini, taking precedence):
  • hue.ini
  • hue_safety_valve.ini
  • hue_safety_valve_server.ini.
ls -ltr /var/run/cloudera-scm-agent/process/`ls -valrt /var/run/cloudera-scm-agent/process | grep HUE_SERVER | tail -1 | awk '{print $9}'`
