Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-1318) Allow granting System.GRANT permission
Date Thu, 05 Mar 2015 18:59:41 GMT


Josh Elser commented on ACCUMULO-1318:

FYI this is biting me right now in testing, so I'm going to push a change for this.

I'll leave it assigned to you for now. If there's something else you were planning on doing
(as a part of the parent issue), I don't want to prematurely close it from underneath you

> With the addition of pluggable authentication/authorizor/permissions handler modules
(ACCUMULO-259), it seems we should rely more on these modules to set their policy for who
has which permissions.
> As such, I don't believe we should continue to constrain the System.GRANT permission,
so that it is held only by the root user. This is an especially important consideration for
ACCUMULO-1300, because in that ticket, there will always be a "local" root user, but there's
no reason that should be the de-facto account that manages other users' permissions from.
