Subject [jira] [Resolved] (RANGER-428) After renaming a repository, changes on existing policies within the repository will not show any effect

Madhan Neethiraj resolved RANGER-428.
-------------------------------------
    Resolution: Not A Bug

The name of the repository in Ranger Admin (aka policy manager) should be same as the name
referenced by the plugin. If a repository is renamed in one of these places (plugin or Ranger
Admin), the name should be updated in other as well.

>             Project: Ranger
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 0.4.0
>         Environment: Hortonworks HDP 2.2 on Sandbox
>            Reporter: Andreas Widmann
>            Priority: Critical
>
> When you change the name of a repository inside the Ranger Policy Manager (e.g. the name
"sandbox_hdfs" of the HDFS repository), all changes you make on existing policies within the
repository will not show any effect.  
> Steps to follow the issue on Hortonworks HDP 2.2 sandbox:
> 1. Change the name of HDFS repository to "hdfs".
> 2. Remove the Write, Execute 	and Admin rights from policy "HDFS Global Allow".
> 3. Try with a user of your choice to create a new directory "test" in the root of HDFS
(via curl command on shell).
> 4. Regarding to the policy, the command musntĀ“t be executed successfully (due to insufficient
permissions). But all users have still full rights (Read, Write, Execute and Admin) on (Web)HDFS.
> The bug will remain until the name of the repository has been changed back to the original
name.
