When is new CDH bundle with impala version 3.3.0 going to release?

When is new CDH bundle with impala version 3.3.0 going to release?

Explorer

Hello Team,

 

 

We were planning to implement Role-Based-Access-Control(RBAC) for our impala tables we tried Sentry but there is a prerequisite of installing Kerberos which we don't want to use. So Apache Ranger is the other option we have but the latest CDH version 6.3 has Impala 3.2 which does not support Ranger. So just wanted to if there is going to be release of new CDH bundle which will have Impala 3.3.0 and support for ranger? What will be approximate release date of the new CDH bundle?

 

 

 

Regards

Parth

@parthk ,

There is no current date locked in for the new impala release that will support Ranger at the moment.

However, I would like to ask why you do not want to have kerberos? Authorization does not work properly without Authentication in the front. Think about an online application, you surely want users to be able to login first, before you can say what level of access they should have. Same applies in CDH world. Kerberos acts as the front end login, and Sentry/Ranger acts as the backend authorization control. So without Kerberos, you are allowing everyone to be able to access CDH.

I strongly suggest you to implement Kerberos first before Sentry, Ranger is the same story regardless.

Cheers
Eric
