I'm using zeppelin to run report using impala.
I downloaded impala JDBC to my linux machine, when i'm looking at the impala queries at cloudera manager, i see my queries running with empty user " ".
I didn't integrate LDAP authnitication yet with Impala.
I have 2 small questions:
1- where and how i can pass the user that i need the queries to run with in the impala JDBC?
2- How i can restrict only queries qith user specific to run.
I am very happy to report that this finally did the trick for me. I had not thought to leave the PWD field blank but that was the answer.
Here is my final connection string that is working perfectly with DBeaver:
@FawzeI think this issue can finally be marked as resolved
The answer for your 2nd question first, You have to implement apache sentry to restrict user specific query access on impala. Work with your Hadoop admin to setup it on your cluster
now for the first (generic) question, obviously you have to pass the parameter from the source. Apache sentry has dependency on other security tool called kerberos which has a concept called keytab. so when you pass the user and password from the source, you also have to pass the keytab to authenticate your network. you can achieve your first requirement with this step
I've shared some high level security information in the below link, hope this will give some idea
I think you didn't get my point yet,
You don't need to provide user name for impala instead you can authenticate your table in two steps
1. Network authentication using Kerberos
2. Query/Table level authentication using Apache Sentry
so when you call the query using JDBC, you need to pass user, passworld & keytab
I got your point, but currently i don't have any authentication that i'm using.
How i can enforce the queries running through specific impala JDBC to run with specific user.
Maybe i'm missing something in the concept.
This is my default.url and impala.url in the interpreter settings:
That version should have been downloaded from Cloudera and as such the downloaded file comes with its own version number. The current version is 2.5.36 and can be found here: http://www.cloudera.com/downloads/connectors/impala/jdbc/2-5-36.html
Please have a look at the documentation contained in that download ("Cloudera-JDBC-Driver-for-Impala-Install-Guide.pdf"), especially at the section "Using User Name" and the "UID" parameter.
