Atlas Taxonomy: Unable to create term (sub-term) from Apache Atlas UI

New Contributor

Hello All,

I am using hortonworks hdp 2.6.3. I am trying to create a subterm from the Apache Atlas UI, but I do not see any pop up after I click "Create Subterm", with no error message.

However, I am able to create a term using Rest API(cUrl POST).

All the required services are running.

I checked application.log and the error logs, but do not see any relevant error in there. Is there any log file I should look into for further details on the error?

moreover, I can create a tag from UI, the issue is only with the term.

Is there any configuration that I should change/check?

Thanks in advance

@A misra

can you provide /usr/hdp/atlas/server/webapp/atlas/js/views/business_catalog/TreeLayoutView.js for review.

@Geoffrey Shelton Okot I am using hortonworks docker sandbox.

Hadoop version: 2.6.4


I have used below link to enable taxonomy:-

while doing so, I got attached error.

As per the link I processed anyway and restarted all the services.

I could see the taxonomy option on atlas now, but when I am trying to create a subterm it does not respond with a popup as per below link:-


let me know if you need any other detail.
