Subject [GitHub] drill pull request: DRILL-4281: Support authorized users to delega...

Github user kbotzum commented on the pull request:

    One suggestion. The terms I use when discussing the concepts with customers are Drill
inbound impersonation and Drill outbound impersonation. That is absolutely clear. It does
imply implementation to a bit but I think makes intent very clear.  You can then derive other
terms from that such as "can_impersonate_inbound" and "principals_authorized_for_inbound_impersonation."
Yea, really wording but very clear. We can of course shorten to "princ_auth_inbound_imper"
in code.
    Would that make sense?
    By the way the use of the termed chained in the context of security usually implied something
like chained delegation which makes me think of a security identity that is both end to end
secure like kerberos and includes all identities that were passed through. That's not this
so I'd avoid use of the term chained.
