Impala Rolling Restart with REST API?

[ Edited ]

Environmental factors require us to restart impala daemons in batches of ~20 and not all at once. It's not a huge issue, but it's an annoyance for our operations folks to do during upgrades. I was exploring the CM REST API and see that some services offer the rolling restart option. I tried using this with Impala, but the curl command gave a "Unsupported Media Type" in the logs.


  1. Is there somethign wrong with the order/syntax of what I'm trying to do with the REST API? Or does Impala just not allow this command.
  2. Does anyone have another idea on how to restart daemons in batches of 20 (outside of lumping them into role groups of 20)?


Cloudera API Explorer:



My Command:

curl -u -X POST <username>:<password> <ip_address>/api/v15/clusters/cluster/services/impala/commands/rollingRestart


Log Output:
