Subject [jira] [Commented] (RANGER-684) Ranger Usersync - Add Ability to transform user/group names
Date Thu, 08 Oct 2015 00:42:26 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/RANGER-684?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14947882#comment-14947882

Don Bosco Durai commented on RANGER-684:

While we are doing it, let's keep in mind what HDFS also does. They have regex syntax in core-site.xml
to transform kerberos principals into linux friendly names. If we can do something like that,
then it will be good. So we can address replacing "space" and as well has some other transformation

Another suggestion is what we are doing in tag based policies in Ranger, someone can extend
the policy using JavaScript. If we can support something like that, then we can provide the
default transformations out of the box, like "space to underscore", etc. But if the user wants
to write more sophisticated transformation, then they can write the script using javascript.

Probably by allowing custom mapping ( like space to underscore)
