Opening the Help Files from the Cloudera Web Site

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.

To configure Cloudera Manager to open the Help files from the Cloudera web site (or local Help files):

  1. From the Administration tab, select Settings.
  2. Under the Support category, enable the Open latest Help files from the Cloudera website. This setting will be enabled by default and you can uncheck this option to open the locally-installed Help documents.
  3. Click Save Changes.
