Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-4415) Tracer requires instance.secret
Date Thu, 18 Aug 2016 22:46:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-4415?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15427312#comment-15427312

Josh Elser commented on ACCUMULO-4415:
--------------------------------------

bq. It's arbitrary now. Users can provide anything. I don't believe we can safely make that
assumption.

And to be clear, it's not that I think we cannot do this, I just believe we need to inform
users of this change if it is made and instructions on how to restore the previous functionality.
Metrics ideally should not be sensitive, but we cannot know all possible cases. Given the
security-minded-ness of Accumulo, I think this is important for us.

> Tracer incorrectly uses instance.secret for its /tracers area in ZooKeeper.
> The tracer does not use the Accumulo system credentials, and instead uses a specific
tracer username and password. It should also not use the instance.secret (which is for the
system credentials).
> A side effect of this bug is that ChangeSecret does not update the /tracers ACLs in ZooKeeper,
preventing the tracer from working entirely after the instance.secret is changed.
> The following error will be seen in the monitor after the ChangeSecret tool is run.
> {code}
> Thread 'tracer' died.

> This affects at least the current 1.8 branch (1.8.0-SNAPSHOT), but I haven't checked
earlier versions.
