Setting up Demo Environment for DataHub with Custom Metadata Ingestion and Non-Auth Frontend Access

Original Slack Thread

Hi Everyone, we are evaluating DataHub for our organisation and we want to build a demo environment similar to| with our own metadata ingested into it. So everyone in our organisation can access the frontend without authentication. Anybody can help me with how to do that?

I was able to achieve this by setting all authentication mechanisms to false in the application.conf and mounting it under datahub-frontend/conf/ but by default the root user datahub is being used to authenticate whenever I open the frontend ui without giving credentials. Anyone knows how to change the default user to some other user with only READER access

I found the solution of updating the mysql backend db for the root user with only required privileges!! Not sure is that the correct way but it works and serves my purpose:blush:
