The next diagram represents the totally different parts used on this answer.
We show two authentication choices that can be utilized to ascertain a connection to the EMR cluster. For every possibility, we deploy a novel stack of AWS CloudFormation templates.
The CloudFormation template performs the next actions when every possibility is chosen:
- Creates a Studio Area in VPC-only mode, together with a person profile named
- Creates constructing blocks, together with the VPC, endpoints, subnets, safety teams, EMR cluster, and different required sources to efficiently run the examples.
- For the EMR cluster, connects the AWS Glue Information Catalog as metastore for EMR Hive and Presto, creates a Hive desk in EMR, and fills it with knowledge from a US airport dataset.
- For the LDAP CloudFormation template, creates an Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) occasion to host the LDAP server to authenticate the Hive and Presto LDAP person.
Choice 1: Light-weight Entry Listing Protocol
For the LDAP authentication CloudFormation template, we provision an Amazon EC2 occasion with an LDAP server and configure the EMR cluster to make use of this server for authentication. That is TLS enabled.
Choice 2: No-Auth
Within the No-Auth authentication CloudFormation template, we use a regular EMR cluster with no authentication enabled.
Deploy the sources with AWS CloudFormation
Full the next steps to deploy the setting:
- Register to the AWS Management Console as an AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) person, ideally an admin person.
- Select Launch Stack to launch the CloudFormation template for the suitable authentication state of affairs. Ensure the Area used to deploy the CloudFormation stack has no current Studio Area. If you have already got a Studio Area in a Area, chances are you’ll select a unique Area.
