Subject [jira] [Created] (RANGER-827) Use system supplied mechanism to get users and groups on unix
Date Tue, 26 Jan 2016 21:33:39 GMT
Bolke de Bruin created RANGER-827:
-------------------------------------

             Summary: Use system supplied mechanism to get users and groups on unix
                 Key: RANGER-827
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/RANGER-827
             Project: Ranger
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: usersync
            Reporter: Bolke de Bruin


The unix user sync currently reads /etc/passwd /etc/groups . This is often not a reflection
of users and groups available on a system especially when nsswitch is configured (eg. sssd,
ldap etc).

Secondly in some cases groups will contain user names that are not returned with "getent passwd",
especially "external users" and is is required to add these using the group information.
