- Many times while working on some issues we want to take a quick look at the "/etc/ambari-server/conf/ambari.properties" without actually doing a SSH to the ambari host.

- In order to access the Ambari Service using the following URL: (here "erie1.example.com" is ambari hostname)

http://erie1.example.com:8080/api/v1/services/AMBARI/components/AMBARI_SERVER

.

- We will find that "ambari.properties" values are being returned as part of the JSON response something like following:

{

}

.

**NOTE:** The HttpResponse that we are getting only shows the current state of the "/etc/ambari-server/conf/ambari.properties", Which means even if we make a new change in the properties file (like adding a new property AAA = BBB) it will be immediately reflected when we get the HttpResponse. But ambari-server will read this properties file only during the restart. So any changes made to the ambari.properties requires a restart. .
