Administering Ranger Users/Groups and Permissions

To view the list of users and groups who can access the Ranger portal or its services, select Settings > Users/Groups in the top menu.

The Users/Groups page lists:

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

  • External users who can access services 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 services, run reports, and perform other administrative tasks. Admins can also create child policies based on the original policy (base policy).

  • On the Groups page, you can click the people icon under Users and view the members of that group.
