    • Configure how to access Cloudera Manager help files. By default, when you click the Help link under the Support menu in the Cloudera Manager Admin console, Help files from the Cloudera web site are opened. This is because local Help files are not updated after installation. You can configure Cloudera Manager to open either the latest Help files from the Cloudera web site (this option requires Internet access from the browser) or locally-installed Help files by configuring the property Open latest Help files from the Cloudera website.
  • External Authentication - Specify the configuration to use LDAP, Active Directory, or an external program for authentication. See Configuring External Authentication for instructions.
  • Parcels - Configure settings for parcels, including the location of remote repositories that should be made available for download, and other settings such as the frequency with which Cloudera Manager will check for new parcels, limits on the number of downloads or concurrent distribution uploads. See Parcels for more information.
  • Network - Configure proxy server settings.
  • Custom Service Descriptors - Configure custom service descriptor properties for Add-on Services.
