(2:55 – 4:50) How to add the Required Roles for the Live4 User

You will also need to set certain authorizations in order for the Live4 user to carry out Smart Data Integration tasks.

First go to your system user and expand the Security folder. Then expand the user folder and select the Live4 user. This is the user that a developer will use to do any and all of the work in Eclipse and/or the WebIDE throughout the course.

In the Live4 user navigate to the System Privileges tab and click on the green plus sign to add a trio of privileges. Essentially we will need to utilize an agent, install a Hadoop adapter and create a virtual table. So select ADAPTER ADMIN, AGENT ADMIN and CREATE REMOTE SOURCE and then click ok.
