We would like to automate the deployment of Cloudera manager/CDH to our own datacenter. I can find two ways so far: 1. Cloudera Director with plugin like BYON, this method suffers from lack of document. 2. Use script to Install Cloudera manager, then use CM's API to install CDH.
Which method is preferred from Cloudera's perspective? Is there any instruction I can find for BYON plugin? Any suggestion is appreciated.
BYON is a plugin that is not recommended for production. You can find out how the plugin works by visiting our open-source repo for it here:
If it doesn't suit your needs, we also have documentation on how to write your own custom plugin here:
