What is CRN?

CRN is an acronym for Customer Resource Number and this is a Cloudera-specific identifier for an environment. The CRN uniquely identifies the environment as well as the CDP control plane that is used to create it.

Where can I find the CRN?

It is located prominently on the Details page of each CDP environment. Steps to find the CRN for an environment:
