Re: Impala on Hue failed after configure LDAP

Super Guru



Did you configure Hue to use LDAP authentication to Impala?  If you have Kerberos enabled, I'd recommend sticking with that as the internals should be worked out automatically to allow the "hue" user (hue) to impersonate the users who have logged into Hue.


Based on the error, it appears you may have configured hue with:





If that is the case, then the Hue role will attempt to authenticate to Impala and then impersonate the user who logged into the Hue interface (which appears to be "mojdev")


Impala is not configured, by default, to allow impersonation by "mojdev" user; rather, it is configured to allow impersonation by the user named "hue".




If you have follow-up questions, please let us know your Hue configuration for Impala.
