Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-9892) Add support for unsandboxed UDF
Date Fri, 24 Jul 2015 13:03:04 GMT
Jonathan Ellis created CASSANDRA-9892:

             Summary: Add support for unsandboxed UDF
                 Key: CASSANDRA-9892
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Jonathan Ellis
            Assignee: Robert Stupp
            Priority: Minor

>From discussion on CASSANDRA-9402,

The approach postgresql takes is to distinguish between "trusted" (sandboxed) and "untrusted"
(anything goes) UDF languages. 

Creating an untrusted language always requires superuser mode. Once that is done, creating
functions in it requires nothing special.

Personally I would be fine with this approach, but I think it would be more useful to have
the extra permission on creating the function, and also wouldn't require adding explicit CREATE

So I'd suggest just providing different CQL permissions for trusted and untrusted, i.e. if
you have CREATE FUNCTION permission that allows you to create sandboxed UDF, but you can only
create unsandboxed if you have CREATE UNTRUSTED.
