How to test Ranger authorization?

Hello,

I've installed Ranger on my kerberized cluster and it works correctly.

I've followed this link

https://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HDP2/HDP-2.4.3/bk_Security_Guide/content/installing_ranger...

to install Ranger.

I've tried to follow this link

https://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HDP2/HDP-2.4.3/bk_Security_Guide/content/hdfs_service.html

to configure HDFS service for example in order to test Ranger functionalities, but i didn't understand the utility of this service and how can i test it after creating it?

So, my question is how to check the utility of Ranger in my cluster and how to test the authorization which is the principal goal of Ranger?

I would be grateful if someone could help me understand this issue.
