Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-1045) Create a suite of shell commands or common features
Date Wed, 08 May 2013 22:27:15 GMT


Mike Drob commented on ACCUMULO-1045:

Ok, I think I finally grok this ticket. An important prerequisite for nice set of command
line tools would be cleaner handling of authentication. If users have to do something like
{{accumulo-scan -u user -p password -t table [-r row]}} then I'm pretty sure we would have
a revolt on our hands.

Some of this can be taken care of with the addition of a {{.accumulorc}} file, especially
the user/pass part. Another way to handle the credential stuff might be through the new Authorizations
API that [~vines] added, and delegating to a sane system like LDAP and not requiring the user
to specify additional details.

I think the {{.accumulorc}} support would be generally useful though, and will create a separate
ticket for it.

> Create a suite of command-line utilities (probably based on the shell's existing commands,
or a subset of them), rather than be restricted to the limitations of the shell to issue these
> This adds benefit by being able to more simply pipe to external utilities, like awk,
grep, sed, etc. It also has the potential to eliminate restrictions when scanning for binary
data, standardize command line arguments better (especially by removing the shell "current-table"
context), and leverage settings/profiles stored in some file (like $HOME/.accumulo/config).
