Re: Is Kafka and Storm supported via Ranger?

Yes you need to have a Kerberos secured cluster for Storm plug in to be fully functional

Ranger cannot set policies for Storm unless it is secured with Kerberos. Kerberos needs to be configured. Coincidentally @Ali Bajwa has an example for Storm here at Setup Storm Plugin for Ranger HDP 2.3
