I'm installing a new Cloudera 6.2 Cluster and I used to use The sentry policy file for creating roles, groups and users. Now I'm trying to migrate that to the sentry service configuration. But I'm stuck in this issue, and I think I missed a step.
This is what I did:
Enable the sentry service in Hive and Impala.
Enable Sentry Synchronization in HDFS.
Create an admin user (in my case I used the impala user).
Create a test group (group_testdb_admin) in the "Manage user" section in HUE.
Create a test role (testdb_admin_role) in the security section. (server=server1 db=testdb action=ALL)
Assing the role to the group.
Create a testuser1 and assigned the group that I just created to the user.
I can confirm that Sentry is Synchronized with HDFS:
