Connection Authentication Types

Hadoop (HDFS) Connector supports the following connection authentication types:

  • Kerberos
    This connection type uses the Kerberos principal as the username. The keytab path you specify obtains a ticket-granting ticket (TGT) from the authorization server.

  • Simple
    This connection type passes the name of the node that contains the file system you want to connect to as the default name key.

Next Step

After you complete the prerequisites and experiment with templates and examples, you are ready to create an app with Anypoint Studio.
