Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-12681) Reject empty options and invalid DC names in replication configuration while creating or altering a keyspace.
Date Fri, 23 Sep 2016 02:44:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-12681?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15515172#comment-15515172
] 

Jeff Jirsa commented on CASSANDRA-12681:
----------------------------------------

This has been mentioned in the past (typos in KS replication settings can cause queries to
fail, in particular), so it's clearly a pain point for multiple people, but we should note
that this un-does the backwards-compatibility changes of CASSANDRA-4795 from 2013. At the
time, it was noted that unknown options were a horrible thing to do, but also recognized that
people were using it for various reasons. 

Maybe it IS time to reconsider CASSANDRA-4795 - it's been 3 years, hopefully people have stopped
abusing the schema.

> Add some restrictions around create / alter keyspace with NetworkTopologyStrategy:
> 1. Do not accept empty replication configuration (no DC options after class). Cassandra
checks that SimpleStrategy must have replication_factor option but does not check that at
least one DC should be present in the options for NetworkTopologyStrategy.
> 2. Cassandra accepts any random string as DC name replication option for NetworkTopologyStrategy
while creating or altering keyspaces. Add a restriction that the options specified is valid
datacenter name. Using incorrect value or simple mistake in typing the DC name can cause outage
in production environment.
