Hue: Can super user status be granted to an LDAP group?

Explorer

Can super users status be granted to an entire LDAP group or must it be done one user at a time?

Unfortunately there is no way to provide super user access to an entire group today.  It must be done one user at a time.  There is a feature request to add this in a future release.  You could do it programatically to make it a little easier, see the section "How to make a certain user a Hue admin"

You could create a list of users and iterate through them in hue shell.  Make sure to set HUE_CONF_DIR=/var/cloudera-scm-agent/process/id-hue-HUE_SERVER where id is most recent.  ON CDH 5.5 and above you also have to set:

 

export HUE_IGNORE_PASSWORD_SCRIPT_ERRORS=1

export HUE_DATABASE_PASSWORD=huedatabasepassword

 

Hope this helps.
