Subject [jira] [Created] (RANGER-730) Import LDAP discovery tool
Date Fri, 13 Nov 2015 17:40:10 GMT
Don Bosco Durai created RANGER-730:

             Summary: Import LDAP discovery tool
                 Key: RANGER-730
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/RANGER-730
             Project: Ranger
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: usersync
    Affects Versions: 0.5.0
            Reporter: Don Bosco Durai

I played around with the ldap tool. It is a great tool to begin with, but I felt we need to
make a few enhancement to make it more usable:

Challenges faced:
1. The error messages were not very intuitive
2. The options provided are not clear. We might have work on the documentation
3. The tool had some implicit assumption of group mapping and it broke when I used it with
an AD setup differently
4. I feel, the tool should also give a command option like ldapsearch, so it is easy to try
out different options.
5. It should give an option to list all the attributes for an user
6. Generate the ldap properties required by Ambari

If anyone wants to work on this, then we should start a discussion thread to come up with
the V2 requirements.
