Subject [jira] [Created] (DRILL-3984) DOCS: configuring-user-authentication page should reference configuring-web-ui-and-rest-api-security

Andy Pernsteiner created DRILL-3984:

             Summary: DOCS: configuring-user-authentication page should reference configuring-web-ui-and-rest-api-security
                 Key: DRILL-3984
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DRILL-3984
             Project: Apache Drill
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Documentation
    Affects Versions: 1.2.0
         Environment: N/a
            Reporter: Andy Pernsteiner
            Priority: Trivial

1.2 seems to have some new capabilities, namely the ability to restrict administrative (alter
system, etc) functions to specific users/groups, as well as to restrict the UI/REST interface

In the page http://drill.apache.org/docs/configuring-user-authentication/ , there is the following

Administrator Privileges

When authentication is enabled, only Drill users who are assigned Drill cluster administrator
privileges can perform the following tasks:

Change a system-level option by issuing an ALTER SYSTEM command
Update a storage plugin configuration through the REST API or Web Console
View profiles of all queries that all users have run or are currently running in a cluster
Cancel running queries that were launched by any user in the cluster

The issue is that there is no further explanation on how to:

1) set the appropriate system variables to assign users/groups to have admin privileges
2) secure the UI (along w/ pre-req's/etc)

Simple fix is to refer people to the appropriate page within the 'administrator privileges'
