Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-1018) Client does not give informative message when user can not read table
Date Sun, 03 Feb 2013 19:48:12 GMT


Christopher Tubbs commented on ACCUMULO-1018:

Under what circumstances can a client not know which table it was trying to read when it got
a permissions error? It seems to me that the client code should always have the table name
when an exception occurs as a result of not having sufficient permissions. I imagine the observed
behavior is the result of an application passing through an AccumuloSecurityException, instead
of handling it properly. If that is the case, then this is a problem with the application
using Accumulo, not Accumulo having insufficiently informative messages.

> Assume a user has an application that is reading from many tables and does not have permission
to read from one table.  In this case the exception does not tell them which table they can
not read from.  If not familiar with the application, it can take a while to track this issue
down on a system with many tables.
