Subject [Discuss] : Should a non-superuser be allowed to update ACL of feed or process entity
Date Mon, 14 Sep 2015 21:42:38 GMT
Hi Team,

Today, Feed/Process entities have ACL with owner and group. Support for permissions is not
implemented yet. Any user who is the owner OR who belongs to the group can update/delete/suspend
the entity.

If two users "user1" and "user2" belong to same group "users" and the falcon entity ACL is
<ACL owner="user1" group="users" permission="*"/>, then user2 can update the falcon
entity and claim ownership of this entity. I believe that user2 should not be allowed to do
so unless it is superuser.  Similar behavior is not allowed in HDFS.  Please comment if you
