You will need to toggle the Ranger authenticaion to LDAP,make sure you have already configured the and imported any Synced the users and group!

Make sure you have a local user who is set to adminin Ranger because after switching to LDAP authentication the admin /admin wont work anymore .

Ranger cannot authenticate the users. It's for authorization. Delete local users in Ranger to block users.
