Experts, We are using LDAP/AD for user authentication. How do we remove users and group entries from Ambari and Ranger user db. We are using HDP 2.4.2 version.

Go to ranger admin page.

Click on settings.

Select Users

select user to delete.

Hit the red delete button

You should know the next time sync is ran the user will show up in list. If you want to remove user permanantly I recommend you remove user from the OU group in AD/LDAP.

@Sunile Manjee Many thanks for your response. It's clear for Ranger user DB now.

How do we removed it form Ambari user/Grp DB?

I understand that best way is to remove it form AD OU and then sync it through to Ambari-Ranger.

However, I wanted to remove the entries from HDP side (ie. Ambari & Ranger) only.

cheers!
