How can the Ambari Ranger Admin internal user (amb_ranger_admin) be force recreated in Ranger?

When installing an existing Ranger 0.4 into Ambari 2.2 to facilitate management in Ambari, the amb_ranger_admin user was not created in Ranger.

What is the simplest way to force this account to be generated?

This may help to clarify the question. I don't remember creating this user manually

Have you enabled any plugin? Try enabling the plugin to see if it creates the user or not

Yes, the HDFS plugin is enabled. The user still doesn't exist.

To clarify, the account and password are correctly defined in Ambari, but they do not exist in Ranger Admin.
