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

             Summary: Allow cqlsh shell ignore .cassandra permission errors and not fail to
open the cqlsh shell.
                 Key: CASSANDRA-7266
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-7266
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Tools
            Reporter: Carolyn Jung
            Priority: Minor


There is an issue with home directories not working and this is causing users to not be able
to execute cqlsh shell. CQLSH shell uses the .cassandra folder in the user's home directory
for history and currently throws error and returns you to the prompt.  Below is the error:

-bash-4.1$ cqlsh 
Traceback (most recent call last): 
File "/usr/bin/cqlsh", line 141, in <module> 
os.mkdir(HISTORY_DIR) 
OSError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/home/testuser/.cassandra'

In this example, testuser does not have access to the home directory.

Requested resolution is to allow a user to access the cqlsh shell even though the home directory
is inaccessible.

The current workaround is to gain access to the home directory.  This is not acceptable in
all cases because of security policies of the organization.
