Editing a Tier

Describes how to modify a cold tier using the Control System, the CLI and the REST API.

For a primer on Data Tiering, see Data Tiering.

You cannot modify a warm tier. You can modify a cold tier (referred to as Remote Target in the MCS) using the MapR Control System, the CLI, and REST API.

Modifying a Remote Target Using the Control System

  1. Log in to the Control System and go to the Remote Target tab under Data > Volumes.
  2. Click the name of the remote target (cold tier) to display the Edit Remote Target window.
  3. Make necessary changes to the CREDENTIALS.
  4. Click Save Changes to save the changes.

Modifying a Cold Tier Using the CLI and REST API

Run the following command to modify a cold tier:
$maprcli tier modify -name <tier_name> -credential <credentials_file_path>
Send a request of type POST. For example:
curl -k -X POST 'https://abc.sj.us:8443/rest/tier/modify?name=<tier_name>&credential_str=<JSON>' --user mapr:mapr
