On our secured HDP 2.4.2 cluster we have configured Ranger to define security policies and Knox for parameter security. Ranger works fine with all the components (HDFS/YARN/HBASE/Hive) but not the Knox. The policies defined in Knox repository are not being reflected. I tried checking by Audit-> plugins tab, it doesn't show up there, also checked in corresponding policycache
But the file does not exist.
Its strange to me that for other components it works fine but not for Knox.
Can you suggest what I should be looking for?
@Smart Solutions are you sure you have enable ranger plugin for knox ? please check settings --> advanced setting --> knox-ranger-plugin-properties , whether ranger plugin is enabled for it.
if it is enabled , then please check gateway.log in knox, whether policies are being refreshed there , you must be seeing some exception there!
