Cloudbreak - kerberos-env json descriptor format

I'm trying to add some advanced kerberos options within cloudbreak and am stuck on the format of the kerberos-env json descriptor. I have tried a few things and keep getting "The descriptor must be a valid JSON with the required fields"

Can anyone advise of the format that should be used?

There is an example here, near the bottom of the page;

If that doesn't help you, can you share what you've used that is giving you an error?

Re: Cloudbreak - kerberos-env json descriptor format

Thanks for sharing your JSON. It looks good but the error also complains about the required fields. I don't see some fields; realm / kdc_type / kdc_host / admin_server_host etc as you can see on the example in the link I previously sent. Can you try to include those values, and see if that makes any improvement?

Re: Cloudbreak - kerberos-env json descriptor format

I have tried the following in a few different ways. Removing the kerberos-env and just using properties. I have also tried getting the kerberos-descriptor from the api and using that. I get the message "The descriptor must be a valid JSON with the required fields Kerberos configuration contains inconsistent parameters" with the below code.

{
"kerberos-env":{
    "properties" : {
        "password_min_uppercase_letters" : "1",
        "password_min_whitespace" : "0",
        "password_min_punctuation" : "1",
        "manage_auth_to_local" : "true",

Re: Cloudbreak - kerberos-env json descriptor format

Just added those and getting "Kerberos configuration contains inconsistent parameters"

Re: Cloudbreak - kerberos-env json descriptor format

Just figured it out. I had previously filled in the basic section and it seems to conflict if you dont clear it when moving to the advanced configuration. I have cleared basic and the configuration has started.

Thank you for your help and very prompt responses :)
