Cloudera Navigator Supported CDH and Managed Service Versions

This section describes the CDH and managed service versions supported by the Cloudera Navigator auditing and metadata features.

Cloudera Navigator Auditing

This section describes the audited operations and service versions supported by Cloudera Navigator auditing.
Component Operations (For details, see Service Audit Events). Minimum Supported Service Version
HDFS
  • Operations that access or modify a file's or directory's data or metadata
  • Operations denied due to lack of privileges
CDH 5.0.0
HBase
  • In simple authentication mode, if the HBase Secure RPC Engine property is false (the default), the username in log events is UNKNOWN. To see a meaningful username:
    1. Click the HBase service.
    2. Click the Configuration tab.
    3. Select Service-wide > Security.
    4. Set the HBase Secure RPC Engine property to true.
    5. Save the change and restart the service.
CDH 5.0.0
Hive
  • Operations (except grant, revoke, and metadata access only) sent to HiveServer2
  • Operations denied due to lack of privileges
Limitations:
  • Actions taken against Hive using the Hive CLI are not audited. Therefore if you have enabled auditing you should disable the Hive CLI to prevent actions against Hive that are not audited.
  • In simple authentication mode, the username in log events is the username passed in the HiveServer2 connect command. If you do not pass a username in the connect command, the username is log events is anonymous.
CDH 5.0.0
Hue
  • Operations (except grant, revoke, and metadata access only) sent through the Beeswax Server
CDH 5.0.0
  • User operations such as log in, log out, add and remove user, add and remove LDAP group, add and remove user from LDAP group
CDH 5.5.0
Impala
  • Queries denied due to lack of privileges
  • Queries that pass analysis
CDH 5.0.0
Sentry
  • Operations sent to the HiveServer2 and Hive Metastore Server roles and Impala service
  • Adding and deleting roles, assigning roles to groups and removing roles from groups, creating and deleting privileges, granting and revoking privileges
  • Operations denied due to lack of privileges
You do not directly configure the Sentry service for auditing. Instead, when you configure the Hive and Impala services for auditing, grant, revoke, and metadata operations appear in the Hive or Impala service audit logs.
