Apache Ambari makes managing distributed systems like Apache Hadoop easier. One of the capabilities of Ambari is Quick Links which allows for easily linking to service UIs.

Case Sensitivity for quicklinks.json

As of late February 2018, the Quick Links documentation invalidly states that http_only and https_only will work. When trying to use the lowercase version of http_only and https_only Ambari ignored this config and the quick links did not work as designed. Instead you must use upper case HTTP_ONLY or HTTPS_ONLY in quicklinks.json.

What is next?

I created AMBARI-21300 to try to fix the documentation page. I don’t have the ability to edit the Apache Ambari confluence documentation. It would be great to update the documentation to avoid future frustration.
