Problem with adding Customized views

  • #54989

    I’m trying to follow the steps from the views document to add customized views into Ambari. However, I failed to find the “views” folder in the specified directory: /var/lib/ambari-server/resources or in other directories, after trying on multiple machines with CentOS 6.5, running Ambari-server 1.5.0.14.
    Any suggestions on this issue?

    Thanks,
    Lucas

    Hi,

    You want to make sure you start with Ambari 1.6.0. That is when the first parts of the Views framework made it into a release:
    http://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/Ambari-1.6.0.0/index.html

    You can look here for some pointers on the APIs:
    https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/AMBARI/Views

    And then there are some examples:
    https://github.com/apache/ambari/tree/trunk/ambari-views/examples

    Thanks.

    Thank you for the clarification. I managed to upgrade Ambari to 1.6.0 and successfully deployed my customized view. Now, i’m able to access the webpage using some url: http://server:8080/views/name/version/INSTANCE_1/ .

    My next question is does the current Ambari web UI provide a channel to access all the customized views or is there any alternatives to manually typing in the urls to visit customized webpages?

    Thanks again!!

    Browse to http://server:8080/#/experimental and click “views”. When you return to the Ambari Web page, you’ll see the Views icon in the upper-right, which provides a drop-down list of your deployed views.

    Thank you so much! Is this functionality going to be included in the next release?
