Is it possible to use a single Ranger instance to manage HDP and HDF ?

New Contributor

Hi!

I deployed HDP-2.5 and HDF-2.0. I want to manage components' policies from a single Ranger instance. Do you know if it is feasible? Do I need to manually installed Ranger and configure it to mange both stacks?

Hi @Stéphane Couzigou

Ranger in HDP and HDF use different plugins so NiFi in not available in your HDP 2.5 Ranger. Using same Ambari and Ranger for HDF and HDP is on the roadmap.

Regarding your other question, it should be possible to have HDP tools and NiFi in the same Ranger if you install it manually. I didn't try it but it should work. You can look at these links to have an idea on how to activate all plugins
