Rest api to get ranger policy for a particular user


I want to fetch policy details of a particular user using rest api . I do want to get policies and then corresponding users to this , but in reverse way.

curl -u admin:admin -X GET http://<Ranger_hsot>:6080/service/public/api/policy

I have executed above rest api but it details policies and its all information but I wanted to get policy corresponding to user .

Basically if I pass user id or its name then when rest api is executed it should details its corresponding policy.

could some one please refer some rest api to achieve above requirement ?

In Apache Ranger 0.6 the path is:

url = http://<rangerHost>:<rangerPort>/service/public/v2/api/service/<YourServiceName>/policy/user=<YourUs...;

If you want to get the result on a pretty json format you can do:

curl -u admin:admin -XGET $url | python -mjson.tool > output.json


To fetch the policy details in Json format. Use the below command :


curl -v -k -u {username} -H "Content-Type: application/json" -H "Accept: application/json" -X GET https://{Ranger_Host}:6182/service/public/v2/api/service/cm_hive/policy/ | python -m json.tool
