Welcome to the Sandbox Splash Screen

The Sandbox provides a splash screen to easily navigate into the Hortonworks Sandbox. Start with tutorials or jump straight into your personal Hadoop environment.  The following is the Sandbox splash screen that you view in your web browser by following the link provided after the virtual machine starts.  

HDP 2.5 Sandbox Splash Screen

The are 2 main paths:

  • New to HDPThis links you to the Ambari Dashboard and opens up the Hello to HDP tutorial.
  • Advance HDPProvides links and basic user authorization info for additional services such as: Ambari, Atlas, Falcon, Ranger, Zeppelin and the SSH webclient Shell in the box.
  • If you are new to the Sandbox, virtual machines or just want to learn more explore the Learning the Ropes of the Hortonworks Sandbox tutorial.

    Sandbox Users

    With the HDP 2.5 Sandbox we have created a collection of users for tutorials across Ambari RBAC, HDFS, Ranger, Atlas, Falcon, and Zeppelin.   When you click on the Advance HDP quick links button in the Splash screen you will see the window listing the additional services and the corresponding ids, passwords and launch pages.   The following image has added the name of the persona and role associated with each of the services to the Advance HDP splash screen.
