             Summary: Ranger should support computing user group memberships by searching
for users and groups
                 Key: RANGER-212
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/RANGER-212
             Project: Ranger
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 0.5.0
            Reporter: Dilli Arumugam
            Assignee: Dilli Arumugam


Ranger should support computing user group memberships by searching for users and groups

At present, Ranger does ldap search for only user entries and relies on ldap attributes of
user to provide user group memberships.

This Jira proposes that in case the ldap back end does not provide user attribute that would
give user group memberships, Ranger should compute the memberships by doing additional ldap
search for groups. (Hadoop ldap group mapping does this.)
