Chapter 4. Using Files View

Files View provides a convenient way to access files and folders in your cluster's file system, using a browser-style user interface. Ambari creates a Files View instance and one default Files View automatically during cluster deployment. The default Files View points to the HDFS file system.

You can also create a custom view from the Files View instance that points to an Amazon Web Services (AWS) S3 file system bucket.

To create a custom Files View to work with files in S3, provide the bucket URL, and valid, AWS credentials in the Settings > View Configs field when you create the view instance that accesses an S3 bucket. You must enter the AWS credentials as a single string containing no space characters using the following syntax:



Files View supports the following tasks:

  • Moving Files/ Folders within your file system.

  • Copying Files/Folders within your file system.

  • Uploading files from a local system

  • Modifying permissions of files and folders
