How to resolve Error 401 Authentication required in HUe?


I've enabled kerberos on my cluster and i've installed on it Hue. Hue was running correctly until kerberos is enabled.

I've configured kerberos for Hue by following this link:

When i accessed to my Hue UI and i navigate through it to Pig, Hive ... I got the errors mentioned in "error1.png" and "error2.png".

How can i fix this issue?




To validate the hue kerberos ticket as hue user run.What the output of the below statement?

$ klist 

Forcefully expire the ticket


As hue user grab a Kerberos ticket

$ kinit -k -t /etc/security/keytabs/hue.service.keytab hue/$FQDN@REALM 

Validate by running


Retry the earlier steps

Hello, the output of $klist as hue user is:

Ticket cache: FILE:/tmp/krb5cc_1019
Default principal: hue/ambari@ROSAFI.COM
Valid starting Expires Service principal
11/13/17 14:17:25 11/14/17 00:17:25 krbtgt/ROSAFI.COM@ROSAFI.COM
renew until 11/20/17 14:17:25

I've tried to grab a kerberos ticket as mentioned above but i still get the same error when i access to my Hue UI.



Please can you check this link Configuring Kerberos Authentication for Hue

@Geoffrey Shelton Okot

I've already checked it and made the necessary configurations to configure Hue with kerberos but i still get the same errors. I'm really stuck. How can i let hue authenticate with my components cluster?



Let me quickly reproduce your environment,

HDP cluster 2.6.3 Kerberized?
Hue version and OS link you used for download and installation?

Can you briefly describe your environment?

@Geoffrey Shelton Okot

Sorry for the delay.

HDP cluster is 2.6.1 and is kerberized. I've also install on it Ranger and Ranger KMS.

My Os is Ubuntu 14.04.
