Kerberos Wizard SPNEGO Authentication

Hi all,

the Kerberos Wizard aof Ambari in version 2.7.3 seems to automatically activate HTTP authentication (SPNEGO) for most Hadoop Web UIs. This makes it quite complicated to access the Web UIs on non-cluster machines, especially using Windows. This automatic activation of HTTP authentication was not the case in earlier versions of Ambari (2.6.x).

Is there a way to prevent this behavior or do I have to go through all the services afterwards and deactivate HTTP authentication manually?

Thx for any help!



Unfortunately, there is no global way to turn this off. It will need to be per service UI... unless multiple service pull from the same configuration.
