import policies in ranger

What are prerequisites i should complete before importing ranger policies from different cluster . for e.g I have exported the ranger policies say clusterA_hdfs from clusterA and now I am importing this policy in clusterB to clusterB_hdfs .

  • Is it required to have present all the users who are belonging to clusteA rnager policy for hdfs ?
  • what could lead to failure of the policies while importing like If policy id or name is same ?

Thanks

Re: import policies in ranger

FYI starting hdp 2.6 you we have the import/export functionality directly on the ranger admin ui.

1. Is it required to have present all the users who are belonging to cluster A ranager policy for hdfs ?

Yes, otherwise the policies for missing users wont be added.

2. what could lead to failure of the policies while importing like If policy id or name is same ?

There is an overwrite checkbox you can select. If checked the policies with same name will be overwritten.
