I have installed latest versions of Ambari and HDP on a two node Dell server . Server has CentOS installed.

I am unable to see all the views

Please let me know what steps are required to see all the views ..

More details below

you need to deploy views after standing up your cluster. Here's the latest document for that http://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/Ambari-2.2.1.1/bk_Ambari_Admin_Guide/content/ch_managing_vi...

@Sunil Singh

as per the document provided by @Artem Ervits, can you check you performed the steps below:

Deploying a View involves obtaining the View Package and making the View available to the Ambari Server. Each View deployed has a unique name. Multiple versions of a View can be deployed at the same time. You can configure multiple versions of a View for your users, depending on their roles, and deploy these versions at the same time.

  1. Obtain the View package. For example, files-0.1.0.jar.
  2. On the Ambari Server host, browse to the views directory.

    cd /var/lib/ambari-server/resources/views

  3. Copy the View package into place.
  4. Restart Ambari Server.

    ambari-server restart

  5. The View is extracted, registered with Ambari, and displays in the Ambari Administration interface as available to create instances.

I am also facing the same problem. The files-2.1.2.1.418.jar exists in the dir - /var/lib/ambari-server/resources/views.

But I can't see that on Ambari Ui. Has anybody solved this ?

Do you have SSL enabled for Ambari, Did you try setting up for SSL https://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/Ambari-2.4.2.0/bk_ambari-views/content/ch_preparing_ambari...
