Cloudera Manager Rest API Authentication using Kerberos Authentication?


I am trying to use kerberos authentication to hit a CM REST API endpoint. It keeps responding back with 401 Unauthorized and all the examples I have seen uses basic auth. 

Does anyone know if this possible and give an example of how it could be done?

HI @drewski7 , Can you please help us with the API you have used and the failure logs as well to check. 


Dear @drewski7 please use this api to get the result. 


curl -X POST "" -H "accept: application/json" -k -u admin:pssword

replace api v43 version with ur version and cluster name. if you dont have tls change 7183 with 7180 and remove -k option
