Dependency of HDP Atlas on Ranger

Expert 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.

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.
