Would like to ask help on installing ranger and enable its plugins via blueprint vs via ambari.
I've installed Ranger HA via blueprint, successfully with plugins enabled. But, when accessing the ranger dashboard, default services is missing, unlike when enabling the plugins manually via ambari, service is already available. see screenshots:
Plugin may be visibly enabled in ambari after blueprint install, but it won't be configured and available in Ranger GUI unless the "plugined" service is restarted. Moreover - keep in mind that if you set your own password for amb_ranger_admin user (for example using jinja2 template in blueprint) it has to follow required rules - at least 8 chars and at least one letter and one digit within. Unproperly set password was my case.
If you are installing cluster remotely, those API calls below may be usefull for you (for example to call from ansible playbook). Example for HIVE (all components, all hosts).
