Creating Users in Ranger - now what

Explorer

Hi all , new to hortonworks data platform. have inherited a new installation on prem that has never been used. Data Scientist asking for access but I do not know where to start. From reading , I created user in Ranger but they do not seem to be able to access HDFS even though permissioned to this service. hwo do they "consume" the service. ssh ? webui? Is Ranger the end all of user creation process or must I create a local user on some box , somewhere. how do you begin,? tad overwhelmed. thanks
