Privacera Platform

Adding Tags with Ranger REST API

:

Prerequisite: Make sure the repo is created on Ranger for tags and Hive has the same tag service selected.

To add a tag using Rest API in Ranger, use the following steps:

  1. Create privacera_tags in the Ranger Tag Based Policy.

  2. Associate the privacera_tags to Hive service.

    vi atlas_tag_test.json
    
  3. Edit the JSON file shown below based on your specific table/tag information.
