Wildcard in Ranger Kafka Policies

Wildcard in Ranger Kafka Policies

Contributor

Hello,

I'm trying to create some ACL rules in Ranger for Kafka topics.

Since the user wants to access several topics that start with the same name, i tried to add the topic_name* in the topic field, but it doesn't work. Only if i put the topic full name. 

I tried to look in the documentation and it seems that Ranger accepts wildcards, but i couldn't find any example. Can some advise on this?

Thank you

Paula

There was an issue one of the Kafka brokers that was keeping some topics from being read. The wildcards are woking fine in Ranger.
