SYMPTOM: External group synced from Unix/LDAP/AD system are labelled as ‘Internal’ in Ranger Admin UI.

Currently, when I check under Ranger -> Settings -> Groups, I see around 1700 groups. And all the groups are shown as internal. However, when I login to the Linux hosts I see only 77 groups. I am wondering how to identify from UI which groups are internal and external as all the groups are shown as internal.

ERROR:

1. After Ranger and Usersync installation, started Ranger admin and Usersync to sync UNIX OS users.

2. Logged in to Ranger Admin Dashboard and visited User/Group section, then clicked on Group tab.

External group synced from Unix/LDAP/AD system are labelled as ‘Internal’ in Ranger Admin UI.
