Public REST APIs to fetch Users and Groups ?

Cloudera Employee

We would like to fetch Ranger Users and Groups for automation. I found non-public APIs to fetch both. Below are the APIs.

We are using below non - public APIs to get Users and Groups :

- service/xusers/users – To fetch users

- service/xusers/groups – To fetch groups

We have 2 questions :

1) Is Hortonworks planning to make these APIs public?

2) Can we use these non-public APIs and are these guarenteed to be backward compatible?


Yes, these API can be used.
