Setting View Permissions

By default, a new View instance has no permissions set. An Ambari Admin must specify which users and groups can use the View or, on a local cluster, specify permissions based on cluster roles. An Admin can also set permissions other than those required to use a View.

To set permissions for users and groups to use a view:


  1. Browse to a view and expand it.

  2. Click the name of the view instance you want to modify.

  3. In the Permissions section, click the Users or Groups control.

  4. Modify the user and group lists, as appropriate.

  5. Click the check mark to save changes.

The Views Framework provides a way for view developers to specify custom permissions, beyond just the default Use permission. If custom permissions are specified, they will show up in the Ambari Admin interface and the Ambari Admin can set users and groups on these permissions.

View permissions can also be inherited from Cluster roles. If you are using a Local Cluster for view configuration, you can optionally choose to provide view Use permission based on cluster roles.
