> Applications/users could connect to gaianDB using their own authentication information
- for example userid/password in the simple case. Here the ranger plugin will use that id
for policy checks.
> However in a multi tiered architecture a service id (aka non personal account) may be
used, and somehow the user to be impersonated is passed via an additional property. This has
a number of implications to the system configuration, derby/gaiandb configuration & the
plugin implementation. 
> Opening this Jira as a placeholder and will add a document soon (++days) on the same
to capture some of the discussion around this area in recent days.
