Apache sentry in Ambari Cluster

Apache sentry in Ambari Cluster

I want to do POC on Apache Sentry in our Hadoop cluster (which was set up through Ambari)

Now Apache Sentry is Cloudera project. And I am not able to find any relevant documents for Sentry configuration in hadoop/ Ambari clusters.

Please help me by explaining pre-requisites and steps to configure the same.

@Pardeep Gorla

If i am not wrong sentry is not supported by Ambari.

You can check the equivalent of sentry which is Ranger in Hortonworks. Ranger provides many more features than sentry -

Pls check -

@Sagar Shimpi Thanks for your reply.

Thanks for providing Ranger Details.

Agree Sentry is not supported by Ambari but is it not possible to integrate with our hadoop components, which was configured by Ambari ?

We are also using HUE in our cluster by changing configuration details. Not everything is working but most of the things are working in HUE.

@Pardeep Gorla you could try to define a custom stack in Ambari: https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/AMBARI/Defining+a+Custom+Stack+and+Services

If you are interested in alternatives to Sentry that are already covered by Ambari, feel free to provide details about your security use case, and I'm sure you'll get some good recommendations.
