Enable Sentry Service for Solr (not Policy File Based)

Rising Star



I am in the process of enabling Sentry in quickstart. As it is documented here I need to



  1. Go to the Solr service.
  2. Click the Configuration tab.
  3. Select Scope > Solr (Service-Wide).
  4. Select Category > Main.
  5. Locate the Sentry Service property and select Sentry.



However, under Solr --> Configuration, Category "Service-Wide", there is only "Policy File Based Sentry" section and not "Sentry Service".


Can you please advice?


Thank you

Hi @gerasimos



What version of Cloudera Manager are you using?  (Support --> About)


Please post a screen shot of what you see when you navigate to the Solr Configuration and search for "sentry" without choosing any other filters.
