Presto ranger integration error

Presto ranger integration error

HI All,

I am working to integrate ranger and presto and following this URL but ended with error and integration is not successful.


  1. Created a ranger-${RANGER_VERSION}-presto-plugin.tar.gz file.
  2. Extracted tar file to ranger-presto-plugin
  3. Changed install.properies file.
  4. Run ./

It was successful run but It did not create & rules.json file. And I created these files manually in /etc/presto. Now presto is not starting and failed with the below error.

2019-06-21T04:59:21.731Z ERROR main com.facebook.presto.server.PrestoServer Access control ranger is not registered
java.lang.IllegalStateException: Access control ranger is not registered
at com.facebook.presto.server.PrestoServer.main(

Do we need to use ranger-servicedef-presto.json anywhere because its not mentioned in ranger presto integration URL.

OR any another link which I can follow which is having all information.
