Dependency of HDP Atlas on Ranger

Dependency of HDP Atlas on Ranger

Contributor

Can I access HDP Atlas without Ranger?

I am new to HDP and so far I can use Hive, HBase, and Sqoop without Ranger installed. Now I am trying Atlas and following this link.

https://docs.cloudera.com/HDPDocuments/HDP3/HDP-3.1.0/configuring-atlas/content/configure_atlas_secu...

It looks like I have to use Ranger for

  1. accessing Atlas, and 
  2. communication between Ranger and other services like Hive and HBase.

Is this correct?

Thanks.

Re: Dependency of HDP Atlas on Ranger

@Seaport 

Integration with Ranger is for Atlas Security and in case you want to use tag based policies which is one of the most common use cases for Ranger + Atlas. But is not a requirement, see following link:

https://docs.cloudera.com/HDPDocuments/HDP3/HDP-3.1.0/configuring-atlas/content/additional_requireme...

 

This is also mentioned in our documentation see more in section: Additional Requirements for Atlas with Kerberos without Ranger

 

Finally, to install Atlas you are only required to have installed Infra Solr, Kafka and Hbase.
