Add custom properties using Privacera Manager on Privacera Platform

Using Privacera Manager, you can configure custom properties for the following Privacera Platform services:

  • PEG

  • Discovery

  • Data Access Server

  • Ranger Admin

  • Ranger Usersync

If you want to override default/hard-coded property values, add the properties to the corresponding YAML file and define a value for it.

Example: Set custom username and password for Discovery

When you install Privacera Platform on your instance, the default username and password for the Discovery service are padmin/padmin. You can override these default values and define your own username and password for the Discovery service.

To do so, follow these steps:

  1. SSH to the instance.

  2. Run the following commands according to your environment:

    • AWS

      cd ~/privacera/privacera-manager
      cp config/sample-vars/vars.discovery.aws.yml config/custom-vars/
      vi config/custom-vars/vars.discovery.aws.yml
    • Azure

      cd ~/privacera/privacera-manager
      cp config/sample-vars/vars.discovery.azure.yml config/custom-vars/
      vi config/custom-vars/vars.discovery.azure.yml
    • GCP

      cd ~/privacera/privacera-manager
      cp config/sample-vars/vars.discovery.gcp.yml config/custom-vars/
      vi config/custom-vars/vars.discovery.gcp.yml
  3. Add the following two properties to the YAML file to set your username and password:

    DISCOVERY_PORTAL_SERVICE_USERNAME: ${Username}
    DISCOVERY_PORTAL_SERVICE_PASSWORD: ${Password}
    
  4. Run the following commands.

    cd ~/privacera/privacera-manager
    ./privacera-manager.sh update
