Set {USER} user in Ranger policy?

Explorer

https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/RANGER/Support+for+%24username+variable describes an interesting feature to automagically create dynamic rules for users, for instance a personal db for every users.

Question is: how can we set this in Ranger admin or API? I got the following answer while calling the API:

{"statusCode":1,"msgDesc":"{USER}: user does not exist. policy='test {USER}' service='INT1_hive'"}

I'm using HDP 2.5.3.

But thanks I didn't pay attention to the version in the jira (https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/RANGER-698). I'll upgrade then :)
