-------------------------------------

             Summary: Kerberos identity definitions in Kerberos descriptors should explicitly
declare a reference
                 Key: AMBARI-17993
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AMBARI-17993
             Project: Ambari
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: ambari-server
    Affects Versions: 2.4.0
            Reporter: Robert Levas
            Assignee: Robert Levas
            Priority: Blocker
             Fix For: 2.4.0


Kerberos identity definitions in Kerberos descriptors should explicitly declare a reference
rather than rely on the identity's _name_ attribute. 

Currently, the set of Kerberos identities declared at a service-level or a component-level
can contain identities with unique names.  For example using:

{code}
  "identities": [
    {
      "name": "identity",
      "principal": {
        "value": "service/_HOST@${realm}",
        "configuration": "service-site/property1.principal",
        ...
      },
      "keytab": {
        "file": "${keytab_dir}/service.service.keytab",
        "configuration": "service-site/property1.keytab",
        ...
      }
    },
    {
      "name": "identity",
      "principal": {
        "value": "service/_HOST@${realm}",
        "configuration": "service-site/property2.principal",
        ...
      },
      "keytab": {
        "file": "${keytab_dir}/service.service.keytab",
        "configuration": "service-site/property2.keytab",
        ...
      }
    }
  ]
{code}

Only the first "identity" principal is realized and the additional one is ignored, leaving
the configurations {service-site/property2.principal} and {service-site/property2.keytab}
untouched when Kerberos is enabled for the service. 

To help this, the 2nd instance can be converted to a reference, overriding only the attributes
the need to be changed - like the configurations. 

{code}
  "identities": [
    {
      "name": "identity",
      "principal": {
        "value": "service/_HOST@${realm}",
        "configuration": "service-site/property1.principal",
        ...
      },
      "keytab": {
        "file": "${keytab_dir}/service.service.keytab",
        "configuration": "service-site/property1.keytab",
        ...
      }
    },
    {
      "name": "/SERVICE/identity",
      "principal": {
        "configuration": "service-site/property2.principal"
      },
      "keytab": {
        "configuration": "service-site/property2.keytab"
      }
    }
  ]
{code}

This allows for both identity declarations to be realized, however this is limited to only
the 2 instances. If a 3rd instance is needed (to set an additional configuration), it must
look be:

{code}
    {
      "name": "/SERVICE/identity",
      "principal": {
        "configuration": "service-site/property3.principal"
      },
      "keytab": {
        "configuration": "service-site/property3.keytab"
      }
    }
{code}

However since it's name is the same as the 2nd instance, it will be ignored. 

If explicit references are specified, then multiple uniquely-named identity blocks will be
allowed to reference the same base identity, effectively enabling the ability to declare unlimited
configurations for the same identity definition:

{code}
  "identities": [
    {
      "name": "identity",
      "principal": {
        "value": "service/_HOST@${realm}",
        "configuration": "service-site/property1.principal",
        ...
      },
      "keytab": {
        "file": "${keytab_dir}/service.service.keytab",
        "configuration": "service-site/property1.keytab",
        ...
      }
    },
    {
      "name": "identitiy_reference1",
      "reference": "/SERVICE/identity",
      "principal": {
        "configuration": "service-site/property2.principal"
      },
      "keytab": {
        "configuration": "service-site/property2.keytab"
      }
    },
    {
      "name": "identitiy_reference2",
      "reference": "/SERVICE/identity",
      "principal": {
        "configuration": "service-site/property3.principal"
      },
      "keytab": {
        "configuration": "service-site/property3.keytab"
      }
    }
  ]
{code}

NOTE: Backwards compatibility must be maintained when implementing this as to not break existing
Kerberos descriptors. So identity block names the look like paths are to continue to be treated
as references.
