Subject [jira] [Commented] (RANGER-827) Use system supplied mechanism to get users and groups on unix
Date Sat, 13 Feb 2016 17:49:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/RANGER-827?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15146089#comment-15146089

Bolke de Bruin commented on RANGER-827:


1) My apologies: there is a small bug in the "enumerate groups code" (one liner fix). It wasn't
caught by the tests as it requires a external source for user ids. Patch is attached.

2) On the submission to the review board and reading on it, I assume that I need to do a submission
there for new tickets and not for this one. Is that correct?

> 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 it is required to add these using the group information.
