Step 2 — Disabling anonymous access

  1. In the Zeppelin conf directory, locate the zeppelin-site.xml file. If this file does not exist, copy (do not rename) the zeppelin-site.xml.template file to zeppelin-site.xml.

    #command example below: sudo cp zeppelin-site.xml.template zeppelin-site.xml
  2. Open the zeppelin-site.xml file in vi or nano editor and set the property zeppelin.anonymous.allowed to false.

This setting disables any anonymous access to Zeppelin. All users are forced to enter a username and password to login to Zeppelin.
