The platform requires that one backend datastore be configured as the base storage layer. This base storage layer is used for storing uploaded data and writing results and profiles. Please complete the following steps to set the base storage layer for the Trifacta platform.

You cannot change the base storage layer after it has been set. You must uninstall and reinstall the platform to change it.


  1. You can apply this change through the Admin Settings Page (recommended) or trifacta-conf.json. For more information, see Platform Configuration Methods.
  2. Locate the following parameter and set it to the value for your base storage layer:

    "webapp.storageProtocol": "hdfs",
  3. Save your changes and restart the platform.

    NOTE: To complete the integration with the base storage layer, additional configuration is required.
