OkeraEnsemble Deployment on Databricks (Preview Feature)

Okera provides an authorization layer that intercepts Databricks data requests to Amazon S3 to determine whether users have access to the file and data in the request. If they do, the request is passed to Amazon S3 for processing. If they do not have access to the file, the request is rejected and returned.

To enable Okera file access control (OkeraEnsemble) for Databricks in Amazon S3 environments, you must enable the Okera file system driver using the environment variable OKERA_ENABLE_OKERA_FS. In the Databricks Environment Variables section under Clusters -> Advanced Options -> Spark, set the following environment variable to true.


The OKERA_ENABLE_OKERA_FS environment variable installs the Okera file system driver.
