New Contributor


I am trying to download Cloudera Manager and CDH repo but it is asking for username and password.

I found on cloudera website:

Effective Jan 31, 2021, all Cloudera software requires a subscription.

Is this subscription free ?

I have to download and install the express edition.

Hi @hobhit, to download the Cloudera software you need a valid Subscription. Please see these threads for more details:


If you are not yet a customer and are interested in obtaining a subscription to any Cloudera Product, the first step would be to contact the Cloudera sales team.
