Using Custom Authentication

This section describes how to use Hadoop pseudo authentication for custom authentication.

Editing the hbase-site.xml file is the procedure to follow if you want to use Hadoop pseudo authentication. Alternatively, you can write and use your own authenticator to substitute for the "simple" configuration by implementing the Hadoop AuthenticationHandler interface. If you are using custom authentication, place your authenticator jar in the following directory:
/opt/mapr/hbase/hbase-<hbase_version>/lib/

Then start the REST Gateway.
