Final article of the hybrid cloud series (see parent article here), and it's the funnest one! In this tutorial, we will learn to use Cloudera Viz to create visual apps. We will not go in depth into how to use viz, rather we will import an already existing app, executing on this part of the tutorial flow:

Step 2: Update each maps with Mapbox token

In order for the maps to display, you will have to add a mapbox token. I will only detail one of the three dashboard edit here, but you will need to do it for each dashboard.

For this, first create an account at https://account.mapbox.com/auth/signup/ and copy your access token:
