There are, but it seems that they are for Ranger internal use. There aren't any public APIs. Here is the public API documentation for Ranger 0.5. You can also take a look at the following classes if you're interested:

org.apache.ranger.rest.PublicAPIs

org.apache.ranger.rest.PublicAPIsv2

The UI is hitting some user and group endpoints, but it doesn't seem as if there is documentation around them. I wouldn't rely on them.
