Ranger

Configure Ranger in Cloudera Manager-managed CDP Private Cloud Base cluster.

Usually, Ranger and most HDP services are set up to synchronize and authenticate against an LDAP/AD service. In the Cloudera Manager-managed CDP Private Cloud Base cluster, additional options are available to manage integrations using the aspects of the existing operating system's IDM integration.

The configuration for Ranger in Cloudera Manager-managed CDP Private Cloud Base cluster is through PAM (Pluggable Authentication Module). In a Kerberized environment, PAM integration is available at the Operating system level.

You can use the Ranger services for authentication, user, and group synchronization using the PAM integration.

If PAM integration is not an option, then you must record the details from Ambari to install and configure Ranger in Cloudera Manager.

To convert the Ranger settings from Ambari to Cloudera Manager, extract an Ambari blueprint from the Ambari Server before proceeding further. The sections for Ranger are ranger-admin-site (from the Admin Server) and ranger-ugsync-site (for the User or Group Sync Process).
