Cannot see set role to a user in a group in Sentry

New Contributor

I created a group in linux called operator with testuser as a member and assigned the role dkmf to the operator group with >grant role dkmf to group operator. This works as below I copied the output from >show role grant operator;

 


t> show role grant group operator;
+-------+---------------+-------------+----------+--+
| role | grant_option | grant_time | grantor |
+-------+---------------+-------------+----------+--+
| dkmf | false | NULL | -- |
+-------+---------------+-------------+----------+--+
1 row selected (0.061 seconds)

 

But when I am logged in as testuser and and try >show current roles; 

the dkmf role does not show, the ones that were set before. 

 

What's missing?

If you are managing groups via the underlying OS you will need to manually add the group and user mapping to a minimum of the sentry host and your client host. It is recommended to add them to all hosts to avoid permission ambiguity when running jobs.
