Configuring Zeppelin Interpreters

Out-of-box, the interpreters in Apache Zeppelin on the HPE Ezmeral Data Fabric are preconfigured to run against different backend engines. You may need to perform manual steps to configure the Livy, Spark, and JDBC interpreters. You can configure the idle timeout threshold for interpreters.

To configure an interpreter:
  1. Log in as the cluster administrator (typically mapr).
  2. In the top right-hand menu, click Interpreter:
  3. Search for the required interpreter.
  4. Edit the required fields. For example, to configure the %livy interpreter, you need to edit the zeppelin.livy.url property. For a secure cluster, change http to https, and set the hostname instead of using the default localhost. Note that nonsecure clusters are not supported by releases 7.0.0 and later.
  5. Click Save.
