Renaming a Service

A service is given a name upon installation, and that name is used as an identifier internally. However, Cloudera Manager allows you to provide your own display name for a service, and that name will appear in the Cloudera Manager User Interface instead of the original (internal) name.

To provide (or change) the display name of a service:

  1. Pull down the Actions menu for the service, and select Rename...
  2. Type the new name you want.
  3. Click Rename Service.

Note, however, that the original service name will still be used internally, and may appear or be required in certain circumstances, such as in log messages or in the API.

The rename action is recorded as an Audit event.

When looking at Audit or Event search results for the renamed service, it is possible that these search results might contain either only the original (internal) name, or both the display name as well as the original name.
