Known Issues and Limitations

  • Impersonation is not supported for Kafka REST Proxy for MapR Streams. Kafka REST is run as mapr user which means that you must explicitly give mapr user permissions to consume and produce from/to streams. For example, the consumeperm parameter must be set to mapr user to be able to consume and the produceperm parameter must be set to mapr user to be able to produce.
