Spotfire with and without Krb


Hey team,

Do we have some feedback regarding Spotfire / HDP without & with Kerberos / Knox and Best practices ?

Thanks and kind regards.


@mlanciaux Please see this link

Kerberos is must if you want to implement security/secure authentication.

Any recommendation for a jdbc:hive2:// string that would use Kerberos for the cluster and SSL for Hive?

Also, if kinit is required, should this be part of the 'Open session commands' or 'Connection initialization' field in the Spotfire Data Source configuration.

Any help appreciated here..
