             Summary: Figure out internal authentication
                 Key: ACCUMULO-2705
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-2705
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Sub-task
            Reporter: Josh Elser
            Assignee: Josh Elser
             Fix For: 1.7.0


When creating a table to use for storing replication "bookkeeping", I found that the internal
!SYSTEM user doesn't have the ability to create a table. Should it?

Without this, the user would have to create/configure a custom local user account with proper
credentials to read/write the replication table as well as persist this in accumulo-site.xml.
My first impression is that this is excessive waste because the usage is purely within the
tablet server already -- need to try to figure out if there's a reason that !SYSTEM shouldn't
be allowed to create tables.
