Use this command to disable a Ranger service (Hadoop monitoring).

This command requires valid administrative authority on the Ambari server such as an admin or service administrator account. After running the command, the Ambari administrator must restart the affected Hadoop components so that the changes take effect.

This API is available in Guardium V10.1.4 and later.

REST API syntax

GuardAPI syntax

disable_monitoring_ranger_service parameter=value


Parameter Value type Description
clusterName String Required. Ambari cluster name.
serviceName String Required. Name of the service. Valid values:
  • hdfs
  • hive
  • hbase
  • kafka
  • storm
api_target_host String

Specifies the target hosts where the API executes. Valid values:
  • all_managed: execute on all managed units but not the central manager
  • all: execute on all managed units and the central manager
  • group:<group name>: execute on all managed units identified by <group name>
  • host name or IP address of a managed unit: specified from the central manager to execute on a managed unit.  For example, api_target_host=
  • host name or IP address of the central manager: specified from a managed unit to execute on the central manager. For example, api_target_host=

IP addresses must conform to the IP mode of your network. For dual IP mode, use the same IP protocol with which the managed unit is registered with the central manager. For example, if the registration uses IPv6, specify an IPv6 address. The hostname is independent of IP mode and can be used with any mode.
