Ready to Get Started?

Introduction

With the Cloudera DataFlow (CDF) Sandbox, Apache NiFi comes pre-installed in the Ambari Stack and pre-configured out of the box to utilize many of its features. In the tutorial, it shows you how to access the NiFi HTML UI in one of two ways: use the HDF Splash Screen Page "Advanced Quick Links" or Ambari UI "Quick Links".

Prerequisites

Outline

Note: For VMware users, you will need to add the auto generated IP address on startup of your virtual machine followed by CDF Sandbox hostname to your hosts file, example 192.168.17.129 sandbox-hdf.hortonworks.com. On MAC, open /private/etc/hosts; LINUX, open /etc/hosts; WINDOWS 10, open C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts as an administrator.

Step 1: Open HDF Splash Page

1. Open sandbox-hdf.hortonworks.com:1080 with your favorite web browser:

hdf_splash_screen

Choose either approach to access NiFi UI.

Approach 1: Access NiFi HTML UI via Ambari Dashboard
