Using the HBase Thrift Gateway

HBase Thrift Gateway includes an API and a service that accepts Thrift requests to connect to MapR Database tables. The HBase Thirft Gateway can be installed as a service that is managed by Warden. When mapr-hbasethrift is installed, the warden.hbasethrift.conf file is added to the /opt/mapr/conf/conf.d directory.

Note: MapR SASL authentication, encryption, and impersonation for HBase Thrift Gateway are enabled by default on secure clusters.
