Subject [jira] [Created] (AMBARI-18888) Ambari-agent: Create configuration files with JCEKS information
Date Mon, 14 Nov 2016 23:22:58 GMT
Nahappan Somasundaram created AMBARI-18888:

             Summary: Ambari-agent: Create configuration files with JCEKS information
                 Key: AMBARI-18888
             Project: Ambari
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: ambari-agent
            Reporter: Nahappan Somasundaram
            Assignee: Nahappan Somasundaram

When a non-status command is received, a command.json file is generated. This file contains
the passwords used in a configuration. When the command is then executed, ambari agent spawns
off a subprocess to execute component-specific Python scripts to generate the configuration
files using the data from the command.json file.

To avoid storing clear text passwords in command.json file and configuration files, ambari-agent
will first generate the JCEKS files corresponding to the configuration information in the
command JSON blob coming from the server and then generate the command.json with the path
to the JCEKS store instead of clear text passwords for *password* properties.

Subsequently when executing a command, ambari-agent will generate the configuration files
with the JCEKS path information from command.json.
