Simple User Authorization mode is not working in Apache Atlas as expected


Simple User Authorization mode is not working in Apache Atlas as expected

New Contributor


I am facing 2 issues.

1) I was trying to use the simple authorization model provided by atlas I have made my custom Role with user as 'abhishek' linked to a custom group and tried to modify atlas-simple-authz-policy.json as per the correct syntax. presented in the official documentation.Additionally,I also tried to create another custom role for other user 'tushar' linked to a different group.

Whenever I try to login I get the following error as mentioned below -

2018-11-23 11:04:56,486 ERROR - [pool-1-thread-7 - 1bac333e-78ce-46b7-a7d2-ccc2f62e67ee:] ~ graph rollback due to exception AtlasBaseException:Instance __AtlasUserProfile with unique attribute {name=abhishek} does not exist (GraphTransactionInterceptor:156)

The same error comes in log file even if I successfully login through other user accounts.

Although above error persists but login is successful

2) I am successfully able to login with different user accounts that I mentioned in file.However,the custom type that I created from one account (say**

abhishek) are reflected/shown while logging in from different user accounts(say tushar).

Why authorization is not working as expected ?

Kindly suggest for the same.

Thanks in Advance
