Re: Can we use hdfs acl and ranger hdfs plugin at the same time ?

@Saurabh Kumar Yes, you can. Both Ranger policies and HDFS policies exist. You can alter xasecure.add-hadoop-authorization to "false" which would enforce only Ranger policies but this would potentially break many processes and is not recommended. The recommendation is to execute something like “hdfs dfs -chmod -R 0000 /path/to/hdfs/folders” on any folders you want to manage exclusively with Ranger.

For more detail see http://hadoop.apache.org/docs/r2.7.1/hadoop-project-dist/hadoop-hdfs/HdfsPermissionsGuide.html
