Ranger Audits does not log file access audits the same way as HDFS audits log, hence I'm not able to see the exact operation performed ?

As per current implementation. Ranger maps user actions as per below given actions from HDFS. ---

NONE("---"), 
EXECUTE("--x"), 
WRITE("-w-"), 
WRITE_EXECUTE("-wx"), 
READ("r--"), 
READ_EXECUTE("r-x"), 
READ_WRITE("rw-"), 
ALL("rwx");
