What determines what user / groups Ranger can see when setting policies?

Expert Contributor

Have users on local machines that have HDFS /user dirs that do not show up as possible users when setting Ranger policies 110208-1565302102759.pngI can see that Ranger already have a place where you can see and add users in the settings menu of the ranger UI, but not sure where this is getting populated from. So my question then is what determines if Ranger can see cluster users for setting policies (and is there an easy way to manage this via ambari)?
