Hi, yes, Knox is a component part of the stack and needs to be added as a service to the cluster you're connecting to: https://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HDP2/HDP-2.6.1/bk_security/content/perimeter_security_with...

And it also needs to be configured for oauth as by default it uses an LDAP as the authentication backend.

Maybe it would be easier to get access to a different endpoint without oauth, like webhdfs or ambari views if a GUI is sufficient.
