Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-5080) cassandra-cli doesn't support JMX authentication.
Date Thu, 20 Dec 2012 11:19:12 GMT
Sergey Olefir created CASSANDRA-5080:

             Summary: cassandra-cli doesn't support JMX authentication.
                 Key: CASSANDRA-5080
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Tools
    Affects Versions: 1.1.7, 1.1.6
            Reporter: Sergey Olefir

It seems that cassandra-cli doesn't support JMX user authentication.

Specifically I went about securing our Cassandra cluster slightly -- I've added cassandra-level
authentication (which cassandra-cli does support), but then I discovered that nodetool is
still completely unprotected. So I went ahead and secured JMX (via
and Nodetool supports JMX authentication via
-u and -pw options.

However it seems that cassandra-cli doesn't support JMX authentication, e.g.:
apache-cassandra-1.1.6\bin>cassandra-cli -h hostname -u experiment -pw password
Starting Cassandra Client
Connected to: "db" on hostname/9160
Welcome to Cassandra CLI version 1.1.6

[experiment@unknown] show keyspaces;
WARNING: Could not connect to the JMX on hostname:7199, information won't be shown.

Keyspace: system:
  Replication Strategy: org.apache.cassandra.locator.LocalStrategy
  Durable Writes: true
    Options: [replication_factor:1]
... (rest of keyspace output snipped)

help connect; and cassandra-cli --help do not seem to indicate that there's any way to specify
JMX login information.
