Subject [jira] [Updated] (RANGER-1276) User/Group search is failing due to encoding issues
Date Wed, 21 Dec 2016 15:20:58 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/RANGER-1276?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Pradeep Agrawal updated RANGER-1276:
------------------------------------
    Description: 
if usersync process add groups with spaces in ranger admin, then to remove a user from a group
it calls REST:
{code}/group/{groupName}/user/{userName}{code}
In this REST call if a group name contains spaces then URLEncoder.encode(s, "UTF-8") method
replace these spaces with + symbol and request is forwarded to ranger-admin. Whenever Ranger
receives group name with + character (rather spaces) it tries to search the received group
name in db but fails to find any rows as the group name with '+' character does not exist.
At Ranger admin end this process is considered as a failure of the request and ranger-admin
sends the error message to the log file.
Expected : During encoding usersync process should encode spaces to %20 so that ranger-admin
can decode the %20 code to spaces.
