Chapter 6. Users/Groups Administration

To examine the list of users and groups who can access the Ranger portal or its repositories, click the User/Groups tab at the top of the Ranger Console. The User/sGroup view displays:

  • Internal users who can log in to the Ranger portal; created by the Ranger console Policy Manager

  • External users who can access repositories controlled by the Ranger portal; created at other systems like Active Directory, LDAP or UNIX, and synched with those systems

  • Admins who are the only users with permission to create users and create repositories, run reports, and perform other administrative tasks. Admins can also create child policies based on the original policy (base policy).
