I am in process of setting up a CDP cluster (private base) and in step of configuring local repositories. I have got the Cloudera repos configured via out standard repository solution, Artifactory since servers will not have access to public internet to access Cloudera archives.
Now the URL given to me to access those repos has to be authenticated via a User ID and API key. So URL ultimately turns out something like this:
1. Is there a way I can configure a authentication based YUM repository for Cloudera Manager packages, without having the need to enter credentials in a plain text in base URL field of YUM repo?
2. Once we have Cloudera Manager installed, we can provide a custom repo link in Cloudera Manager to fetch Cloudera Runtime Parcels. At that stage, will Cloudera Manager accept Environment variables in the URL or that again has to be a plain text? Else, is there any other way to setup authentication based Cloudera runtime repo which can be used in Cloudera Manager so we don't have to provide these creds in a plain text.
