How to search for files in HDFS in Apache Atlas

Expert Contributor

How do you search for files in HDFS from the Apache Atlas basic search UI?

Recently installed HDP sandbox for VirtualBox and started Atlas from the Ambari UI. Have added several files (some xlsx and txt files in HDFS /tmp dir) to HDFS via the Ambari file view. Looking for these files in the Atlas search UI, finds nothing (eg. typing a double-quoted substring of a file's name in the "Search By Text" input space), not even files that existed in HDFS before adding these test files. Basically would like to be able to browse HDFS in Atlas for the purpose of adding classifications and other metadata. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong here / what I'm not getting here?
