Problem when delete policy in ranger by name,How to delete a policy in Ranger with service name and policy name?

Explorer

Hi,

I try to delete ranger policy by name, but failed(delete by policy id succeeds):

curl -v -u admin:admin -X DELETE http://myhost:6080/service/public/v2/api/policy?servicename=myservice&policyname=mypolicy

It reports HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request

Does anyone know the reasons?

,

Follow the document I user the Restapi to delete a policy

I can successfully delete policy by poicyid using curl, but failed to delete policy by name.

curl -v -u admin:admin -X DELETE http://35.167.43.5:6080/service/public/v2/api/policy?servicename=hawq&policyname=mypolicy

But it reports HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request.

Does anyone know the reason?

Thanks

@hubert zhang bIt should work. I used the following to delete a policy 'test' in service 'cl1_hadoop'

# curl -v -u admin:admin -X DELETE 'http://localhost:6080/service/public/v2/api/policy?servicename=cl1_hadoop&policyname=test'

Yes, I could delete by id. But I find policy can be deleted by policy name in Ranger wiki. Doesn't it work?
