Subject [jira] [Commented] (RANGER-1130) Considering extending usersync to support Apache Syncope
Date Tue, 02 Aug 2016 11:34:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/RANGER-1130?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15403800#comment-15403800

Colm O hEigeartaigh commented on RANGER-1130:

The former. Syncope can sync in users/groups from backend resources, and expose them via a
simple REST API. So it should be pretty easy to add an extension to the usersync service to
import users/groups that way.

> Right now we can sync users/groups in from LDAP and UNIX. We should also consider supporting
Apache Syncope. Syncope offers a REST API so we can easily pull in users/groups in Ranger.
Syncope is a powerful IdM solution, that supports multiple backend connectors to pull users/groups
from LDAP, AD, DBs, web services etc.
