Subject [jira] [Created] (ACCUMULO-1319) Remove root username prompt from init
Date Thu, 18 Apr 2013 15:59:18 GMT
Christopher Tubbs created ACCUMULO-1319:

             Summary: Remove root username prompt from init
                 Key: ACCUMULO-1319
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Task
            Reporter: Christopher Tubbs
            Assignee: John Vines
             Fix For: 1.5.0

The prompt for the root user name was added to get around the constraint that System.GRANT
permission cannot be granted. However, that's only true in the ZKAuthenticator/Authorization
component that existed previously. It may not be true in the user-configured Authorizor.

Leaving this in for 1.5 would create an unnecessary churn between 1.4 and 1.6, especially
in light of planned 1.6 features (ACCUMULO-1300, which should require a prompt to initialize
the "local" user named "root" only). It also conflicts with ACCUMULO-1024's intentions to
leave user management for pluggable authentication system outside Accumulo and in their own
tools (such as LDAP).

This prompt should not exist in 1.5.
