Unravel Properties

In Unravel, you may need to set properties to enable specific functionality. The property's value must be changed based on your environment/installation. A property is set from the manager tool.

Where appropriate, the description in the properties topic contains values to use depending on your environment. For example, for a given port property, we suggest you use 16010 for CDH and 16030 for HDP. However, these are not the default values, as Unravel has not set the corresponding property to either.


A property's default is the value Unravel already assigned to the property; not all properties have defaults.

Set by user

The Set by user column denotes whether you must set the property.

The column contains Required, which means you must set a value, and Optional, which means it is not mandatory to set that property.


Do not put quotes around the values; this includes all strings, CSL, etc.
