      Description

      Configuring Ranger admin via the current mechanism (environment variables for initial user and then password stored in the database) could be considered insecure.

      Instead, it should be possible to switch off this behaviour and configure LDAP authentication/authorization to the Ranger admin UI and to specify an LDAP group for whom admin level privileges are required.
