Subject [jira] [Commented] (AIRFLOW-85) Create DAGs UI

Joy Gao commented on AIRFLOW-85:

Closed AIRFLOW-1433 as dupe since the FAB work will directly fix the issue here.

>                 Key: AIRFLOW-85
>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Airflow
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: security, ui
>            Reporter: Chris Riccomini
>            Assignee: Joy Gao
>            Priority: Major
> Airflow currently provides only an {{/admin}} UI interface for the webapp. This UI provides
three distinct roles:
>  * Admin
>  * Data profiler
>  * None
> In addition, Airflow currently provides the ability to log in, either via a secure proxy
front-end, or via LDAP/Kerberos, within the webapp.
> We run Airflow with LDAP authentication enabled. This helps us control access to the
UI. However, there is insufficient granularity within the UI. We would like to be able to
grant users the ability to:
>  # View their DAGs, but no one else's.
>  # Control their DAGs, but no one else's.
> This is not possible right now. You can take away the ability to access the connections
and data profiling tabs, but users can still see all DAGs, as well as control the state of
the DB by clearing any DAG status, etc.
> From Airflow-1443:
> The authentication capabilities in the RBAC design proposal introduces a significant
amount of work that is otherwise already built-in in existing frameworks.
> Per community discussion, Flask-AppBuilder (FAB) is the best fit for Airflow as a foundation
to implementing RBAC. This will support integration with different authentication backends
out-of-the-box, and generate permissions for views and ORM models that will simplify view-level
and dag-level access control.
> This implies modifying the current flask views, and deprecating the current Flask-Admin
in favor of FAB's crud.
